r Voi. { -^ 

















In a young country, where the struggle for existence seems to be only 
too soon followed by the struggle for the mighty dollar, we are but little 
concerned with history. 

History is supposed to be the work of the teachers, the professors in 
the universities, the antiquarians and archivists. And yet, how are we to 
understand ourselves and our position as a nation unless there are pre- 
served the evidences of our growth and of the struggles of our fathers to 
the end that a strong nation might be established? And these evidences 
of struggle and growth, so eagerly sought after and so carefully preserved 
by 'the older nations of the world, are not revealed in books, but in repro- 
ductions of scenes of the times. These prints tell a story, by the side of 
which the printed word is cold and dead, and to see the faces of the men 
who accomplished great things for our country, and to see the pictures of 
the houses in which they lived and worked, and of the villages and towns 
as they were in those times, gives us a thrill of "ancestor worship" which 
a discovery in Debrett could never produce. 

The Dominion Government has recognized the necessity for the con- 
servation and preservation of historical documents by the establishment of 
the Archives Department, which is doing a work too little recognized. This 
is a great storehouse of national history, but it has the disadvantages of a 
storehouse in that its treasures cannot be accessible to all. 

Here and there in our country are persons who collect this historical 
material as an avocation or hobby, and among these stands pre-eminently 
Mr. J. Ross Robertson, whose interest in this intellectual pleasure is known 
to collectors the world over. Mr. Robertson believed that the value of 
such material lay, not in the hoarding of it, the mere possession of it, but 
in allowing all those who had similar interests to share in the pleasure of 
looking at and enjoying these illustrations of the age that has gone. 

The value in money expended on this collection is very considerable, 
as those know who are in the market for such illustrations as are trea- 
sured in this collection. These are exceedingly hard to obtain, and there 
are at least one hundred important exhibits in this collection which have 
not been on the London market in complete form for over twenty years, 
and dealers do not know where to look for them. 

The collection is impressive even to the man who thinks in dollars; 
it ^interesting to those who find in it scenes and persons familiar to them 
and recalling the early days of Canada; it is illuminating to the student 
of our history; but, above all, it is the national character of the collection 
that awakens the deepest emotions that here is the history of a young 
nation, the background of men and events which have brought us to this 
critical period in the world's history, and have made us active participators 
in the solution of a great world problem and crisis. 

To the boy and girl at school; to the young man and woman at college, 
whose knowledge of Canadian history is but an acquaintance with the dry 
details of a text-book; to the elderly man and woman, who can remember 
some of the people and some of the scenes depicted; and even to the people 
from other lands who have adopted this country as their home, and wish 
to know something of its history to all these the J. Ross Robertson 
Historical Collection will be a means of education as well as recreation, 
and the name of the donor will live in everlasting remembrance for this 
practical, local and national gift to the city of Toronto. 

The history of this collection is very interesting. In a letter to the 
Public Library Board in 1910, Mr. Robertson stated that for many years 
he had been collecting examples of the history of Canada from 1758 up to 
the present time as exhibits in pictorial form, and that he was anxious that 
the public should have the benefit of it. He knew of no more fitting place 
than the Public Library, and informed the Board that he was willing to 
instal this collection, and, eventually, to give to the Board another collec- 
tion of Canadian prints and photos contained in portfolios in his private 
library, numbering about 15,000 pieces, to be held by the Board in 
trust for the people of Canada. The only condition made by Mr. 
Robertson was that the pictures should be placed in a suitable room,, with 
skilled attendants, covered by insurance, catalogued, and that they should 
not be loaned to any person or persons, or removed from the Library 
building on College street. The collection was to be known as the "J. Ross 
Robertson Historical Collection," and if any one wished to copy a picture 
of the collection this might be done only on condition that permission to do 
so was obtained from the Librarian, and that the collection was given due 
credit on each copy of a picture made, or if published in book or other 
form, each reproduction should be credited to the collection. 

The formal opening took place 29th January, 1912. The collection at 
that time comprised 560 pictures, for these were all that were ready 
for hanging. Since then the growth has been marvellous, and to- 
day (1917) there are 3,700 pictures in the art room. Indeed, it is the 
largest collection of Canadian pictures gathered by any one person, and 
that a private person, and in many respects compares favorably with the 
sollection accumulated by Dr. Doughty, in the Dominion Archives at Ottawa. 

What might be called the central figure is the magnificent oil portrait 
of Governor Simcoe, by E. Wyly GrieT, showing the General in the uniform 
he wore during the time that he was Lieutenant-Governor (1792-6). It 
was fitting that this portrait should be unveiled by Sir John M. Gibson, 
Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, when this collection was opened. 

A unique feature is the reproduction of about ninety pen and pencil 
drawings and water colors, made by Mrs. Simcoe. Were it not for the 
gifted hand of the wife of our first Governor, we would never have had the 
faithful pictures of places and scenes in Upper and Lower Canada from 
1791-6, nor of the early days of the Toronto, Niagara and Kingston settle- 
ments that were then, and are now, important places in the history of the 
Province of Upper Canada. 

The collection has been made up by levying upon practically all the 
print shops of the world, and while it covers all Canada it is particularly 
rich in the illustrations of Toronto and vicinity. This, of course can be 
well understood when one remembers that Mr. Robertson is a native of 
Toronto, and during his whole life has devoted a great deal of his wonder- 
ergy towards building up institutional work within the city.

de Fuca, formerly the capital of Vancouver Island, and now of the 
Province of British Columbia, was named by the officers of the Hudson's 
Bay Company after her late Majesty, Queen Victoria. In the summer of 
1843, the building of the fort, which was the foundation of the future city 
of Victoria, was commenced. The place selected was known to the Indians 
as Camosun or Camosack. It was given the name of Fort Albert, then 
Fort Victoria, and finally in 1852, when the town site was laid out, the 
name Victoria obtained. The city was incorporated in 1862, and the old 
fort finally demolished in 1864. Chromo lithograph, with key. Size 8 x 34.

g_THE CITADEL, LOUISBURG, 1731 Situated in the gorge of the 
King's Bastion. In the early days Louisburg was known as Havre a 
1'Anglois No important settlements, however, were made here until aft* 
the surrender of Newfoundland and Acadia to Great Britain by the Treaty 
of Utrecht when the French troops and inhabitants evacuated Placentia, 
Newfld., and came to Louisburg. In 1714 M. de St. Ovide de Brouillan was 
appointed Governor, and some six years later the fortress was com- 
menced. It was 350 feet long, built of solid masonry, and so constructed 
that in time of trouble it could be surrounded by walls and moats as means 
of defence. Duke d'Anville, who commanded the French Armada, 1746, 
was buried in the citadel, near the chapel. Copied from a plan in the

11 FORT VANCOUVER On the northern bank of the Columbia 
River, ninety miles inland from the sea. It was built in 1824-5 by John 
McLoughlin, first great leader of the Hudson's Bay Company in the Oregon. . 
Primarily the site of the fort was about a mile from the river. This 
location, however, was found to be disadvantageous to transport and com- 
munication, and after a few years a removal was made to within a quarter 
of a mile of the Columbia. For nearly a quarter of a century Fort Van- 
couver was an emporium of the Hudson's Bay Company; for its central 
location gave access to interior trade as well as sea traffic. In 1846, on 
the determination of the Oregon boundary question, this fort passed into 
American territory, but until 1849 remained as a post of the company. 
To-day (1917) the place, known as Vancouver, capital of Clarke County, 
Washington, is the headquarters of the military department of th< 
Columbia. Chromo lithograph. Size 8 x 12.

31 H EARN E "Mr. Samuel Hearne, late Chief at Prince of Wales's 
Fort, Hudson's Bay" For several years a midshipman in the Royal Navy. 
He subsequently entered the service of the Hudson's Bay Company, and 
in 1769 was sent on an expedition to discover a North-West passage. 
Because of unsurmountable difficulties, the expedition was a failure, as 
was a second attempt In December, 1770, however, he made a third 
essay and was this time successful, being the first European to penetrate 
to the Arctic Ocean from the interior. In 1774 he established Cumberland 
House, on the west shore of Cumberland or Pine Island Lake. It is still 
in existence, and at one time was the chief depot or fort of the Cumberland 
District of the Hudson's Bay Company. In 1782 during Hearne's governor-

32 BRITISH COLUMBIA MINER, 1864 The dress of early miners in 
British Columbia is here accurately represented. The only natives of B.C. 
at that time were Indians and half-breeds, the very earliest settlers being 
employes of the Hudson's Bay Company, many of whom married Indian 
women. The men who were working in the country at the date of 
painting, attracted by the discovery of gold, came from all parts of the 
world They were all adventurers and for the most part a superior class 
of men. In Cariboo one frequently met Oxford and Cambridge men. Most 
of the old-timers have passed away, and since the advent of the railways 
a new class has come in from all parts. The first Mines Report in 
British Columbia was published in 1874, so that it is difficult to estimate 
the number of miners in the country during the sixties, but it is said that 
there were about five hundred. To-day (1917) there are nearly ten 
thousand. Oil painting by William G. R. Hind. Size 3x5. Half length.

navigation impossible. At a certain stage of flood-tide, and for a few 
minutes only, the gorge may be passed by vessels. Chromo lithograph. Size

about north-north-west, towards the citadel. This view was evidently inspired 
by John Flemming's old spar yard, near what is now Geo. S. Camp- 
bell & Co.'s wharf, Lower Water street, near foot of Salter street. The 
spar house has been demolished. To be accurate topographically, the space 
below the citadel, in the distance to the right, should be shown filled with 
buildings, as here lies the heart of the city. For artistic purposes it has 
been left devoid of buildings. No such church is in the locality shown in 
background to the left; but the spire of St. Mary's Cathedral (R.C.) in that 
direction probably suggested its introduction. A most artistic pen drawing

the south-east coast of the Province, on the slope of a rocky peninsula. It 
is enclosed by a splendid harbor six miles long and a mile wide. McNab's 
Island, from which this view was made in 1862, by Capt. Westcote W. 
Lyttleton, cf the 64th Regt., is three miles in length and lies at the mouth 
of Halifax Harbor, affording, with George's Island, an excellent shelter for 
it. On McNab's Island are Fort McNab and other batteries, which cross 
fire with that of York Redoubt on the west shore. Lithograph. Size 13 x 19. 

58 ALEXANDER, SIR WILLIAM "A true portrait of William, Earl 
of Stirling, at the age of fifty-seven. Published Novr. 1, 1795, by Wm. 
Richardson, No. 2 Castle street, Leicester Square." The celebrated poet, 
courtier and colonist was born in Scotland, near Stirling. The date of his 
birth is uncertain, some authorities giving 1567, and others, 1580. In 1621 
he became interested in colonization and persuaded James I. to grant him 
a charter covering a large territory in North America practically what is 
now Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island. The colony 
was named "New Scotland." Shortly after the accession to the throne of 
Charles I., Sir William was made a Privy Councillor and Secretary of 
State for Scotland, which offices he held until his death. Created a peer 
in 1630, under the title of Viscount of Stirling and Lord Alexander of 
Tullibody; three years later was raised to the dignity of Earl of Stirling. 
Viscount Canada, etc. He contributed largely to the literature of his 
time, first coming into prominence as the author of "The Tragedies of 
Darius." He also completed the version of the Psalms of David, under- 
taken by King James J. His death took place in 1640. Line engraving.

departure of S. W. Prentice, ensign of the 84th Regiment, and five others, 
from their shipwrecked companions in the depth of winter, 1781. Mr. 
Prentice was sent with public despatches from Govr. Haldiman at Quebec, 
to Sir Heny. Clinton at New York, who, with 18 seamen and passengers, 
were cast away on a desolate, uninhabited part of the Island of Cape 
Breton, Deer. 5, 1780. Five perished and several lost their fingers and toes 
by the severity of the cold. The survivors continued in this place several 
weeks, when Mr. Prentice and such as were able, embarked in a small, 
shatter'd boat to seek some inhabited country. They stopped the leakes of 
their boat by pouring water on its bottom till the holes were closed up with 
ice. During a voyage of two months, in which they suffered incredible 
hardships, and at length, worn out with fatigue, benumbed, diseased and 
famished, they were discovered by some of the native Indians. These 
friendly savages afterwards went to assist those who had been left at the 


wreck of whom 5 only were found alive, and they had subsisted many days 
Tn the bodies of their dead companions. (See Ensign Prentice's Narra-

called the Grande Place, was the scene of military parades and a fashion- 
able promenade. It was the regular meeting place of the Tandem Club, 
which flourished in Quebec when it was a garrison town. In 1650, the 
Huron Indians, who had been driven from Lake Simcoe, encamped here.

town of Montmagny. Its proper designation is St. Thomas de Mont- 
magny. The town is one of the oldest on the banks of the St. Lawrence, 
a parish having been first established there in 1679. Many of the original 
inhabitants were Bretons. Riviere du Sud is a small but beautiful stream,

67 to 71 These pictures comprise views of Quebec, published in Ger- 
many about 1775 four engraved and printed in color by F. X. Habermann, 
acd one by B. F. Leizelt. They are imaginary, and were made 
for panoramic representation. No mention is made of these prints by P. 
Lee Phillips, F.R.G.S., of the Library of Congress, Washington, in his 
work cataloguing the maps, plans, etc., of America, while Dr. A. G. 
Doughty, Dominion Archivist, briefly catalogues them in his "Bibilography 
of the Siege of Quebec." Mr. Phileas Gagnon, however, the keeper of the 
Judicial Archives of Quebec, says with regard to them: "These very 
curious views are rather the fruit of an inventive imagination than pic- 


tures of the localities indicated; but, in spite of this, they are desirable 
additions to a collection of Canadian views. Four views of Boston and two 
of New York, of a similar character to these, were made at the same time 
by the same German designers." The inscriptions on the pictures are in 
French and in German.

' 79 HABITANT OVEN, 1860 Ovens similar to that shown in the 
picture are to be seen in the majority of French-Canadian parishes in the 
Province of Quebec, and are operated exactly as the ovens of professional 


bakers in the towns. They are built of brick with an arched top. In fact, 
except that the bottom of the oven is flat, they are shaped like half an 
egg. They are covered with mortar or cement on the outside for better 
preservation of the structure, and have usually an outer wooden covering 
as shown in the picture. Almost every house is provided with one of 
these ovens. A fire of wood is made in the oven, and, when tne latter has 
become well heated, the fire is raked out, the oven carefully swept, and

and money for the purpose of founding the college that bears his name.

Major-General. While in America he had been elected M.P. for Inverness, 
representing that place until his death in 1782. Although he raised the 
regiment of the 71st Highlanders at the outbreak of the Revolutionary 
War, he did not come to America. He had in 1772 petitioned the Govern- 
ment for the restoration of his ancestral estates, and his request was only 
to a certain extent granted, for the General had to pay thousands of pounds 
in legal and other expenses before he received his property. Water color

British North America Act, under which the "Dominion of Canada" came 
into being. With the picture is a key giving the names of the states-

LAND, 1770 Made, it is said, by a Highlander of the 72nd Regiment, 
showing the flags of the mercantile firms of St. John's prior to 1800, as 
well as the signals used at the signal station. It was customary for a 
soldier on Southern Head (Fort Amherst), lighthouse and fort, to go be- 
tween the flagstaffs seen at the head of the picture, to the right, and with, 
a speaking trumpet (the present day megaphone) as vessels passed in the 
Narrows, ask the usual questions, "What ship is that?" etc. For instance, 
the brig shown is from Weymouth, Eng. The red burgee or pennant signi- 
fies that fact, which is repeated at the Signal Hill Block House. At that 
time the light at Fort Amherst was simply a couple of lanterns burning 
penny dips. By J. W. Hayward, St. John's, Newfoundland. Drawings in

% tary for Ireland in 1807. He was most successful in the Wars of the 
Peninsula, the culminating victory, of course, being that of Waterloo on 
18th June 1815. His character presents a striking contrast to that of his 
great antagonist, Napoleon, in that he never indulged in the slightest mis- 
representation, even to save his own fame. It is a coincidence that both 
were born in the same year. The "Iron Duke" died in 1852. Mezzotint,

of Rhodesia, 1896-97; Director of British South Africa Company, 1898-1904. 
During his stay in Canada he travelled from coast to coast, became 
thoroughly conversant with men and affairs. In fact, it is said that no man 
of the time knew as much of Canada as the former Governor-General whose 
career in the Dominion was successful in the highest sense of the term. He 
was born Nov. 28th, 1851. Died Aug. 29th, 1917. Re-plica of crayon by

action of the United States Government in not keeping in order the unruly 
spirits who were at the time causing annoyance to his Majesty's subjects 
on the frontier. His knowledge of By town (Ottawa) and its qualifications 
s a federal capital were probably communicated to the Prince Consort, 
whose private secretary General Grey was. Head in profile, with fac-

in the collection of the Right Honble. the Earl of Warwick, by J. R. Smith." 
He was born on the banks of the Ohio in 1742. His father, a full-blooded 
Mohawk of the Wolf tribe, died when the lad was quite young. The widow 
married a second time, an Indian whose Christian name was Barnet, hence 
the contraction Brant. Joseph was educated at "Moor Charity School," in 
Lebanon, Conn. Accompanied Sir William Johnson during several expedi- 
tions against the French, and took part in many of the encounters between 
the revolutionists and Indians. His allegiance to Britain so provoked the 
Americans that the valley of the Mohawks, the original home of his people, 
suffered more than any other part of the country during the war. In 1776 
he visited England and was presented at court. He proudly declined to 
kiss the King's hand, but remarked that he would gladly thus salute the 
Queen. While in England he was initiated into Freemasonry in "the Falcon 
Lodge," in Princess Street, Leicester Fields, London, and presented by 
George III. with a Masonic apron. After the war, he, with the greater part 
of the Mohawks, and a number of Indians from the other five tribes, with- 
drew to Canada, where the Six Nations subsequently received grants of 
land near Wellington Square, now Burlington, Ont. Here he built a dwell- 
ing long known as Brant House. In 1785, through his efforts, a wooden 
church was erected at the Mohawk village, near Brantford, where was 
placed the first "Church-going bell" that ever tolled in Upper Canada. He 
died in Brant House, 24th Nov., 1807, and his remains were interred in a 
vault at the Mohawk church on the Grand River. Brant, although a chief 
by courtesy and ability, and always so called, was not such by descent. A

BRITISH NAVY FROM 1748-68 This is a companion set to the drawings in 
To n of the 1768 ' 86 Period. The uniforms of British naval officers, 
68, never having been made in one set, Mr. Robertson secured the ser- 


vices of Commander Charles N. Robinson, editor of the Army and Navy 
Gazette. Under his careful direction and by aid of old prints, the naval 
drawings of this period are given. The first uniform for the executive 
officers of the Royal Navy was prescribed by regulations issued 13th April, 
1748. Only patterns were issued, however, but it is known from portraits 
of Anson and other admirals, that the full dress was ornamental and expen- 
sive. In 1767 new regulations were issued, discontinuing the full dress, 
altering the "frock uniform cloathing," or what would now be called un- 
dress, and making this the only uniform to be worn. In 1768 and 1774 some 
further alterations were made. The uniforms of the Post Captain of over 
three years' standing, and Junior Captain, were copied from coats and 
waistcoats in the Royal United Service Institution, Whitehall, Ixmdon, 
The uniforms worn by the British navy at Quebec under Admiral Saunders 
in 1758 were the same as here shown. Water colors. Size of each pic- 
ture 7x7. Full length. See 1192-7.

the British Dominions in North America," London, 1831-2. The boundary 
line between Canada and the United States, as laid down By Col. Bouchette, 
is generally conceded to be a much fairer one than that determined by the 
Ashburton Treaty. His death occurred at Montreal, April 9th, 1841.

owned it for a considerable time, but Shipman, shortly after his arrival, 
acquired it, and St. Catharines, which had been so named on its first 
survey in 1809, bore the name "Shipman's Corners" for a time. In the 
early days Shipman's Tavern was a favorite rendezvous and pleasure re- 
sort. A tablet to the memory of Paul Shipman is in St. George's Church,

246 SWALE, MRS. HOGARTH J. Foundress of Holy Trinity Church, 
Toronto. In 1845 Mrs. Swale, who resided in England, through the Bishop 
of Ripon, afterwards Archbishop of Canterbury, gave 5,000 sterling to 
Bishop Strachan for the purpose of erecting a church in his diocese. Her 
express conditions were that the church be called the "Church of the Holy 
Trinity," that the seats be "free and unappropriated forever," and that her 
name remain secret. The church was opened and consecrated in 1847. 
For nearly fifty years the secret of who built Holy Trinity Church was well 
kept, but about 1894 the name became known, and in 1897 the church- 
wardens, feeling it was then no breach of confidence, alluded to the matter 
in most fitting terms in their report. Water color from the original in

1865 he formed the Christian Mission, which developed into a large organi- 
zation on military lines, and in 1878 became known as the Salvation Army. 
Mr. Booth, commonly called "General," was an indefatigable worker and 
organizer, and kept constantly in touch with the international work of 
the Army, established the "War Cry" in 1880, and ten years later pub- 
lished "Darkest England and the Way Out." In 1907, Oxford conferred 
upon him the degree of D.C.L. In Washington he was invited to open the 
U.S. Senate with prayer, and, as a mark of honor, the City of London pre- 
sented him with its freedom. His death took place in London, England.

consecrated Bishop of Toronto by Pope Pius IX., taking formal possession 
of the See in September of that year. During his episcopate the House of

missionary at St. John, N.B., but was recalled to Quebec three years later 
to minister to the Irish Catholics of that city. Accommodation offered in 
Church of Notre Dame des Victoires, in which Father McMahon held spe- 
cial services was totally inadequate, so that subscriptions were taken up 
for construction of an independent church. To this fund the Protestants 
of the city liberally subscribed. On 7th July, 1833, the first service was 
held in St. Patrick's. Father McMahon, who died 3rd October^ 1851, is the

foot, the Seneca Indian runner. He was born in 1830 at the Cattaraugus 
Reserve, a few miles southwest of Buffalo, N.Y. In 1865-6 he toured Eng- 
land, and in 1871 ran at Listowel, Ont. In England and occasionally in the 
States he ran in moccasins and Indian head-dress, but perrormed best in 
the regulation costume, the moccasins and feathers being worn for the 


entertainment of the spectators to whom he was somewhat of a circus 
sensation. He ran with the "flat-footed" action common to the Indians, 
but it was not as pronounced as the "shamble" of the Canadian runner, 
Tom Longboat. Bennett's death occurred in 1896 at the Cattaraugus 
Reservation. The name, "Deerfoot," was given to Bennett because of his 
prowess in running down and killing deer when the hard crust of the 
winter's snow was softened by the sun and the speed of the quarry thus 
retarded. London: Published November 9th, 1861, by Geo. Newbold, 303

formally discussed, and at the second meeting, 1st August, 1805, the bar- 
gain was completed. For the sum of $9,500 the extent of 250,808 acres 
were sold, of which Toronto at present (1916) occupies 25,330.4 acres. Of 
this, 20,418.8 acres is land, and 4,911.6 is water. The latter is made up of 
harbor area, 1,759.5 acres, Ashbridge's Bay, 1,385 acres, and other waters.

SIMCOE AND HURON RAILWAY The late F. C. Capreol, of Toronto, 
conceived the idea of carrying through a railroad from Toronto to Lake 
Huron. He met with many obstacles and difficulties in his plans. Nothing 
daunted, however, he persevered, and, finally, on the 15th October, 1851, 
Lady Elgin, wife of the then Governor-General, in the presence of a large 
number of people on the south side of Front street, just west of Simcoe 
street, opposite the old Parliament Buildings, turned the first sod of 
Canada's first railroad. The scene was a gala one. Flags floated, banners 
flew, while Mayor Bowes was resplendent in cocked hat, knee breeches, 
silk stockings, and shoes with silver buckles. In 1859 the system was known 
as the Northern Railway. On amalgamation with the Hamilton and North 
Western Railway, the company in 1888 became the Grand Trunk. Water

264 OLD-TIME BUGGY The first constructed in North York. It 
was made early in 1844 by James Charles and the Wilkins Brothers, at 
Cosford's Corners, about a mile and a half north of present (1916) 
Wellington street, Aurora. Seth Heacock, members of whose family 
lived on farm lots 29, 27, concession 3, King Township, from 1806-1910, 
owned the vehicle, which was considered a fine one and figured in many 
weddings of the countryside. It was presented in 1910 to the York Pioneer 
Society, by G. W. and F. W. Heacock. The vehicle known as the "buggy" 
had its origin in India. The name comes from the Hindustani "baggi." In 
India it was a two-wheeled vehicle with a hood, in England the same, with 
or without a hood, and in the United States and Canada a four-wheeled 
vehicle with one seat, with or without a hood. Drawing in water color.

In 1835 the locality of Holy Trinity Church was known as "the fields," and 
comprised the garden and clear space around the residence of Dr. James 
Macaulay, formerly of the Queen's Rangers. Through funds supplied by 
Mrs. Hogarth J. Swale (see No. 246), the church was built on a site given 
by Col. John Simcoe Macaulay, son of Dr. Macaulay. The building is a 
large brick structure, cruciform in shape, with two narrow transepts 
adjoining the chancel. It runs east and west. The foundation stone was 
laid 1st July, 1846, and the church opened and consecrated, 1847. The 
Church of the Holy Trinity still (1917) stands, enclosed on all sides by 
buildings, within a few rods of Yonge street, one of Toronto's busiest 
thoroughfares. Sketch plan by C. E. Thomas, son of Wm. Thomas, the 
architect. Size 6x8. 

266 WRIT OF SUMMONS, 1816 This writ, which is now (1916) in.

it was in the process of erection the first sessions of the University were 
held in the Parliament Buildings, Front street. The structure shown was 
occupied from 1845-53. A second charter was issued in 1849, and the in- 
stitution became the University of Toronto, the faculty of divinity being 
abolished. In 1853 the faculties of law and medicine were also abolished, 
and in the same year the site of this hall of learning was appropriated for 
the Parliament of Upper and Lower Canada. The University was thus 
compelled to again hold lectures in their old quarters on Front street, but 
in 1855 they returned to the Medical Building, on the site now (1917) 
occupied by the Biological Department. Two years later they removed to 
the new University Buildings. Water color. Size 5x7. See 2815.

277 A LEAPING FIN-BACK Whaling off the British Columbia Coast, 
1912 The artist, who spent some time with the whalers on the north 
coast of Vancouver Island, has here depicted a seventy-foot fin-back whale 
leaping into the air after having been harpooned. These fin-backs average 
seventy feet in length, yielding some forty barrels of oil. During the 
whaling season, which covers nine months of the year, a fleet of small 
vessels is employed, bringing in as many as a dozen prizes a day. Oil, in 
Jblack and white, by Arthur Heming, Toronto. Size 14 x 21.

ronto, this elevation of an obelisk suggested to be erected at the junction 
of King and Yonge Streets, is most respectfully inscribed by their obedient 
humble servant, Thomas Glegg, Architect, July, 1840. It is proposed that 
this obelisk be lighted with oil until it is decided to introduce gas into 
the city. The requisite number, of lamps similar to the ^bove to be made 
and the lamp posts to be cast of a pattern as near as possible to agree in 
design with the obelisk." This lamp post was never erected. Toronto's 
streets were first lighted with gas on 28th Dec., 1841. Photograph from

279 -CUTTING UP A BLUE WHALE At Kyuquot, Vancouver Island, 
1912 The men at the whaling station, the most weasterly on the island 
are engaged in cutting up the bone taken from the skull of an eighty-two 
foot blue whale, captured by a whaling party which Mr. Heming accom- 
panied. The blubber is first stripped off, cut into pieces about a foot 
square, thrown into a chopping machine and ^he minced fat carried to the 
rendering tanks. It is then boiled in these steam tanks, allowed to settle 
and cool, filtered and barrelled. The sediment, or stearine remaining, 
which resembles lard, is valuable in the making of soap and candles. The 
flesh is cooked, dried, screened and blown into sacks, to be sold as 
fertilizer. The bones, after having been boiled, are broken up, dried and 
pounded fine, and then also sold as fertilizer. Oil, in black and white, by 
Arthur Heming, Toronto. Size 14 x 22. 


280 GIVINS HOMESTEAD Front view, 1888 There is some doubt 
as to when this house was built by Col. James Givins, Supt. Indian De- 
partment, Upper Canada, who bought the land, one of twentyeight park 
lots, consisting of one hundred acres each, from Col. Joseph Bouchette in 
1802. The homestead was situated on what was known as Pine Grove, 
North road, and the house was reached from Dundas street, north of Queen, 
east side, near the first turn. It was demolished in 1891, and the site is 
now (1916) 28 Halton street, while the property at the back, on the south 
side of Arthur street, is occupied by houses Nos. 259-279, opposite 
North Givins street. Givins street, north of College, is now Roxton road.

283 THE GRANGE Head of John street, Toronto The main build- 
ing was erected about 1820 by D'Arcy Boulton, eldest son of Justice Boul- 
ton. The gate, now crowded back to the head of John street, was origin- 
ally at Queen street, and the house was reached by a central drive through 
the grounds, beginning at the east side of McCaul street. In the social 
life of York and Toronto the Grange played an important part, many 
notables having been entertained there. After the death of D'Arcy Boul- 
ton in 1844, his widow continued to reside there with her eldest son, 
William Henry Boulton. The widow of the latter married Prof. Goldwin 
Smith. Mrs. Smith died 9th Sept., 1909, and her husband in 1910. By the

288 ELMSLEY VILLA, TORONTO Situated on what Is now the 
northwest corner of Grosvenor and St. Vincent streets. View looking east 
and north This charming roughcast villa was built, 1839-40, by Hon. John 
Simcoe Macaulay, and during Lord Elgin's residence in Toronto, 1849-54, 
was used for the gubernatorial mansion, as the real Government House 
was at that time undergoing extensive repairs. Lord Elgin was particularly 
attracted by the surroundings of Elmsley Villa, and when he came from 
Montreal in the autumn of 1849 expressed himself as highly pleased with 
his new home. From 1855-75 Knox College held its sessions here, and a 
considerable addition was made to the original building to provide dormi- 
tories for the students. Finally the site was occupied by the Central 
(Grosvenor Street) Presbyterian Church, which, in 1916, is still standing.

290 "ROSEDALE," TORONTO The residence of Sheriff Wm. Bots-

dale Ravine, opposite the "white bridge," which crossed the ravine from 
the northerly limit of Gwynne St. (Park Road), where it united with 
Little James St. (Collier). The property was purchased In 1824 by the 
late Sheriff Wm. Botsford Jarvis. At that time the hillsides thereabout 
were covered with roses, hence the origin of the name, "Rosedale," which 
was given by Mrs. Jarvis, who was a granddaughter of Chief Justice 
Powell. During Sheriff Jarvis' occupation of the house, verandahs and a 
conservatory were added and extensions made. All this, however, was 
subsequently removed. A part of the house was moved *and 
made into a dwelling on Roxboro St. E., but this has also disappeared. The 
main entrance to the Jarvis property to-day is No. 12 Rosedale Road.

291 UNION STATION, TORONTO, 1859 In 1858 the original Union 
Station, a frame building, situated about 200 feet west of the west line of 
York St., below Front, was opened. It was considered a fine depot for 
those days. The old station at the corner of Bay and Front streets was 
torn down, all tracks moved from the bay shore bank and the new building 
at the foot of York street made the Union Station for the Grand Trunk, 
Great Western and Northern Railways. In 1871 it was demolished and a 
temporary shed put up at the western side of Simcoe street for the accom- 
modation of passengers until the completion of the second Union Station, 
which was opened on Dominion Day, 1873. The present (1916) structure 
was built, 1896. Water color by William Armstrong. Size 15 x 22.

Upper Canada suffered great inconvenience from the scarcity of fractional 
currency, caused by the suspension of specie payments in consequence of 
the Rebellion. Due bills of merchants increased to such an extent that 

50 ..- 

people became shy of accepting them. Mr. T. D. Harris, of the hardware 
firm of Watkins & Harris, King street east, on permission of the Mayor, 
issued fractional currency, an example of which is here given. The bills 
were redeemable at the "Sign of the Anvil and Sledge," the well-known sign 
of the firm, and were guaranteed. The total amount put out was several 
thousand dollars. Mr. Watkins subsequently sold his share in the business, 
which was commenced in 1829, and discontinued in 1860. The place of 
occupancy during that time was a brick building, No. 158 King street east 
It was destroyed by fire, and when re-built became the Clyde Hotel. 

LAWRENCE HALL, TORONTO, 21ST OCT., 1851 Jenny Lind was a

334 OLDEST PLANTED TREE IN TORONTO A native white elm- 
This noted landmark of the northern part of Toronto stands in the grounds 
of Rosedale House, residence of the late Wm. Botsford Jarvis, who froi 
1827-56 was Sheriff of the Home District. It was two years old wh< 
planted, on 24th May, 1822, by Amelia Jarvis, eldest daughter of Fredericl 
Starr Jarvis, a brother of the Sheriff. The event commemorated the birth- 
day of Princess Victoria (her Majesty Queen Victoria), 24th May, 1819, 
which was also the birthday of Amelia Jarvis. The fused tree, which 
comes from one root, has the remarkable girth of 26 feet, due to branching 
very low. This measurement includes the main trunk, (1) which is by 
itself 21 * feet, and a branch, (2) by itself of 8 feet. The crown is 
tremely broad, having a sweep greater than the height of the tree, whicl 
is 75 feet. The average increase in radius of half an inch a year shows 
that its age is 95 years. The main entrance to the Jarvis property to-day 
is No. 12 Rosedale road. The original residence was demolished mai 
years ago and nothing remains (1916) to mark the site except a few oul 
houses. Photograph, colored. Size 5x7.

Canadian volunteer service. In 1838 he was appointed lieutenant in the 
Governor-General's Body Guard, then commanded by his father, and in 
1846 obtained command of the troop. Colonel Denison may be called the 
founder of the militia in Toronto, having organized cavalry, artillery and

Militia Rifles of Canada, in 1860. He was also for some time alderman for 
St. Patrick's Ward. In 1839 he built Rusholme, a handsome roughcast

498 AGRICULTURAL HALL, TORONTO This building occupied the 
lot on the northwest corner of Queen and Yonge streets. It was a noted 
site from 1830. The commodious frame building which stood there was 
known as the "Sun" Tavern, and later as the "Craven Heifer." About 1857 
the building was burned, and some years later the Government purchased 
the land, and in 1866 the Board of Agriculture erected what was known 
as the Agricultural Hall. The tenants of the stores on the Yonge street 
front were James Fleming & Co., the well-known seedsmen, and WilHam 
Bilton, an oyster and fruit dealer. The building was subsequently re- 
modelled for Philip Jamieson, tailor, and is now (1917) occupied by the 
F. W. Woolworth Company. Water color. Size 4x5. 

499 JUSTICE POWELL'S HOUSE, TORONTO A two-storey, whil 
frame dwelling, erected about 1812, on the east side of York street, near 
Front, and occupied by Chief Justice William Dummer Powell from 1820. 
The Chief Justice died in 1834, but his wife survived him until 1849. Dr. 
Gwynne afterwards occupied the residence, which later became a cheap 
lodging house, and was eventually purchased by Mr. Verral, a one-time 
alderman of the city, who had it demolished in 1894 to make way for the 
stables of the Verral Transfer Company. Water color. Size 6x8. 

500 SEVENTH CUSTOM HOUSE,; TORONTO, 1870-6 When the 
sixth Custom House was burned the Government rented the large three- 
storey brick building which stood at about No. 26 Front street west. It 
had been built as a residence by Judge Jones, and later turned into a 
hotel known as the Rochester House, by John Hanlan, an uncle of the 
famous oarsman, Ned Hanlan. In this building the customs business was 
carried on until 1876, when the present structure was completed on the 
site of the sixth Custom House, southwest corner Fron* and Yon^e streets. 
The site of the Rochester House is now (1917) a fine business block.

an Act was passed by the Legislature to incorporate the "London and 
Gore Railway Company." Nothing, however, being accomplished until 
1845, a second Act reviving that of 1834 was passed, with an amendment 
to change the name of the railway to the Great Western. A reorganization 
of the company took place, and on 3rd December, 1855, the Toronto and 
Hamilton branch of the line was opened for traffic. For a time the Great 


Western used the Union Station at the foot of York street. In March, 
1866, their own depot at the eastern angle of -Esplanade and Yonge street 
was opened. On llth August, 1882, the Great Western amalgamated with 
the Grand Trunk. The old station of the former is now (1917) used as the 
G.T.R. fruit depot. Water color. Size 5x7. 

502 BANK OF UPPER CANADA, TORONTO, 1822-30 Situated on 
the southeast corner of King and Frederick streets; demolished in 1915, 
and now site of the warehouse of A. Muirhead & Co., Ltd. Although an 
Act was passed in 1819 for the institution of a bank in York, the Bank of 
Upper Canada did not commence operations until about 1822. For many 
years it did a flourishing business, but finally became embarrassed, 
burdened with unsaleable lanji^ taken as security, and in 1866 failed. Hon. 
William Allan, one of the incorporators, was the first president, and it was 
in the substantial brick building erected by him in 1818, at the corner of 
King and Frederick streets, that the bank for a number of years did busi- 
ness, removing from there about 1830 to the northeast corner Duke and 
George, and in the early sixties to the southeast corner of Yonge and 
Colborne streets. Water color. Size 6x7. See 522. 

503 DR. WIDMER'S HOUSE, TORONTO North side of Front street 
east, now (1916) the site of Nos. 228-32. After living for many years on 
King street, nearly opposite Ontario, Dr. Christopher Widmer, an eminent 
physician and surgeon of York in the early days, erected on the lower part 
of his lot the dwelling shown in the picture. It was a commodious, double- 
gabled, red brick two-storey dwelling, with a large wing at the west side. 
After Dr. Widmer's death in 1858 the Front street residence became the 
home of his son-in-law, Captain John Clarke, well-known as an officer of 
the 100th Regiment, and also of the Royal Canadian Rifles. It was torn 
down in 1900 and is now part of the site of the Copland Brewery plant.

STREET, TORONTO Here lived Michael, popularly known as "Fisty," 
Masterson and his wife. From 1847-62 they kept boats for hire and were 
well patronized by the boys of Upper Canada College, which was then on 
King street. Masterson had a small schooner, the "Christina," with which 
he is said to have done considerable smuggling in the early days. His 
nickname originated from the fact that he lost his left arm while firing a 
salute at Kingston on the Queen's Birthday. Water color. Size 5x7.

camp of Sir John Colborne, K.C.B., Lieut-Governor of Upper Canada, 1828- 
1836. Water color. Size 6x7. 

507 THIRD PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS View of rear from north- 
east corner Simcoe and Wellington streets. The buildings were com- 
menced in 1826, and from 1832-41 were occupied by the Legislature. At 
different times until 1867 they were used as a court of law, university, 
asylum and military barracks. In 1867 the sessions of the Ontario Legisla- 
ture met within the walls of the red brick pile, continuing to do so until 


1892 the 100th anniversary of the first Parliament of old Upper Canada. 
The 'buildings were demolished in 1903, and the site is now occupied by

508MOSS PARK, TORONTO Residence of the Hon. William Allan, 
at one time Postmaster of York (Toronto), and of his son, Hon. G. W. 
Allan. The old brick mansion was situated on the west side of Sherbourne 
street, between Queen and Shuter, and was occupied for many years by 
the Allans. In 1904 the city purchased the property; the house was de- 
molished and the land used for a public square. Water color, from a pen

one end of the cottage as a dwelling, while the other end was used as the 
custom house. Mr. Carfrae himself afterwards became customs collector

511 UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO, 1862 With the expropriation of 
old King's College in 1853 it became necessary to provide proper accom- 
modation for University College, the name given by legislation to the Arts 
teaching faculty of the University in that year. In 1858 the handsome 
freestone pile, of Norman architecture, was completed, but, unfortunately, 
the February of 1890 saw its destruction by fire. It was rebuilt, however, 
in 1890-2 in practically the same external form as it stands to-day (1917), 
but with various internal changes. The main doorway, which is a copy of 
an ancient English entrance, is said to be the most perfect example of 
Norman architecture on the continent. Water color. Size 5x7. 

512 THIRD CUSTOM HOUSE, YORK, 1828-9 The second collector 
of the port of York was Mr. George Savage, who received his appointment 
in 1828. He established a temporary office in the shop of Isaac Columbus,

In 1870 the building was destroyed by fire. Mr. Carfrae was succeeded in 
the collectorship by William Moore Kelly. In 1843 Mr. Kelly was followed 
by Robert Stanton, who resigned 1849. William F. Meudell was appointed 
collector in 1850, remaining in office eight years, when he was succeeded 
by Robert Spence, who acted until his death in 1868. James E. Smith was 
then appointed and continued in the position until 1879. Water color.

514 ST. PATRICK'S MARKET, TORONTO, 1836-1912 In 1836 Mr. 
D'Arcy Boulton presented to the city the land on which St. Patrick's 
Market now stands, on condition that the corporation should erect a market 
there, and that it should be maintained as such perpetually. Just after 


the presentation a frame building was erected on the site. About 1854 it 
fell into decay and was replaced by a white brick structure two storeys 
high in front and surmounted by a tower. This building was demolished 
in 1912, and the present market erected in 1913. Water color by F. V.

515 SECOND CUSTOM HOUSE, YORK, 1820-8 It was established 
by Col. (Hon.) William Allan, first customs collector of York, in a frame 
storehouse erected by him on the Merchants' Wharf. This wharf, at the 
foot of Frederick street, was one of the earliest landing places for the 
larger lake craft, and belonged to Mr. Allan. The storehouse in question 
was subsequently used as a malt house. Water color. Size 5x6.

structure, which is of stone, is designed after the Renaissance style of 
architecture, and was first occupied November, 1876. The vacant lot 
west of the building was purchased by the Government as a protective 
measure. Mr. John Bertram, who succeeded the late John Small, is the

the Niagara River, probably Lewiston; rail, Niagara Falls to Whitehall 
via Albany; boat, Plattsburg; rail to Caughnawaga via West Chazy, Moore's 
Junction and St. Isidore Junction; ferry to Lachine, and rail to Montreal. 
At that time there were nine railway lines used from Montreal to Niagara 
Falls, several of which were consolidated into the New York Central in 
1853. The "Chief Justice Robinson," 400 tons burthen, was built at 
Niagara, 1842. She was owned and commanded by Captain Hugh Richard- 
son, and was a well-known packet on the route between Lewiston and 
Toronto for several years. Subsequently she was sold, her engine eventu- 
ally being put into a new steamer, the "Marine City." Water color by Wm.

Executive Council and Surveyor-General of Upper Canada, became the 
possessor of some 20,000 acres in the Province, and was the original owner 
of the park lot which constituted the Moss Park estate. Maryville Lodge 
was a one-storey frame structure, facing the north side of King street, 
near the northeast corner of King and Ontario streets. At one end was 
Mr. Smith's office. From the fact that the house was painted yellow it 


acquired the appellation of "The Yellow House." It subsequently became

east corner of King and Frederick streets. The building was erected in 
1807 by Quetton St. George, who in 1805 established himself in business in 
York. For its construction Mr. St. George brought from Oswego or 
Rochester the first bricks ever seen in York. The ground floor and part 
of the cellar were used by the builder for carrying on his general mercan- 
tile business, while the remainder of the building was occupied as a resi- 
dence. In 1817 Mr. St. George transferred this property to Mr. John 
Spread Baldwin, who conducted the business for a number of years. Sub- 
sequently the corner came into possession of the Canada Company, which 
was established in York in 1826, its first office being a room in the Steam- 
boat Hotel, east of the market block in Front street. In the colonization 
of Canada this company played an important part. The site of the old 
Canada Company's Building is (1917) occupied by Adams Bros., saddlers,

524 SHAKESPEARE HOTEL, TORONTO, 1831-70 It was a medium- 
sized, two-storey, white frame structure, on the north-east corner of 
York and King streets, fronting on York street. It was occupied as a 
Mechanics' Boarding House till 1843, when James Mirfield, an Englishman, 
kept it as the Shakespeare Hotel. After his death Mr. Thomas Kerr, an 
enterprising citizen, was the landlord. The house was patronized largely 
by the theatrical profession. For a time plays were put on in a small 
frame theatre at the rear and east of the hotel, entrance to which was 
gained by a lane from King street. It continued open until John Ritchey 
built the Royal Lyceum on the south side of King street. The hotel was 
demolished about 1870 and later rebuilt. It continued as an hotel under 
various names for 45 years, and was last known as the Imperial. It is now

large tracts of land from the Crown. During the War of 1812 the printing 
office of the Upper Canada Gazette was removed to this house, and for a 
time Mr. Mercer had charge of the publication of the paper. On the occu- 
pation of York by the Americans the place was entered and the printing 
press demolished. At Mr. Mercer's death, in 1871, a legal dispute arose 
regarding the validity of the will purported to have been made by him, 
and the result was that the valuable properties were escheated to the 
Crown. The Ogilvie Building now (1917) stands on the site of the old

529 GEORGE DUGGAN'S STORE, TORONTO About 1805 the Rev. 
George O'Kill Stewart, first rector of St. James' Church (Cathedral), 
erected on the south-east corner of King and George streets a small frame 
residence as a rectory. Attached to it he constructed a small stone build- 
ing, afterwards clapboarded, and in this unpretentious place the first Dis- 
trict school in York was conducted from 1807-13. In that year, on Dr. 
Stewart's removal to Kingston, Mr. George Duggan, father of Recorder 
Duggan, became the occupant of the old rectory, keeping a general store 
there. With him resided his brother, Dr. Thos. Duggan, a well-known 
York physician. At a later date, Hughes Bros., clothiers, occupied the 
building. From 1856 until the early seventies, when the building 
was demolished, John Kitson and others conducted a tavern there. A

Firstbrook's Box Factory, 283 King east, is now located on the site. It 
was a storey and a half frame building, with dormer windows along its 
roof, and in the early days was the first-class hotel, not only of York, but 
of all Upper Canada. It was one of the oldest houses in York, and as far 
back as 1820 presented a dilapidated appearance. Before the completion of 
the Legislative Buildings which succeeded those burned by the Americans 
when they occupied York in 1813, the Parliament of U.C. met for one 
session in the ball room of the hotel, and here also public dinners and 
assemblies were held. John Jordan was a pew holder in St. James' Church 
(Cathedral) from its inception, and was one of the signatories to a con-

the office of the Courier, edited by George Gurnett, and from 1836-58 the 
Mirror was published there by Charles Donlevy. On Moore's removal the 
ground floor was occupied as a grocery store by William Henderson. The

Colors, 1863 F. W. Cumberland (afterwards Lieut.-Colonel), Managing 
Director of the Northern Railway, organized the Tenth Royals in 1861-2. 
Early in January, 1862, drill began for the officers, and in March the offi- 
cial list of appointments was compiled. On 6th July, 1863, a set of colors 
was presented by the ladies of Toronto, the event taking place on the 
commons which were in those days bounded by Spadina avenue, College, 
Cecil and Huron streets. Mrs. Cumberland read the presentation address, 
after which Col. Robertson, commandant of the garrison, handed first the 
Queen's and then the regimental colors to her. She in turn presented them

Toronto University, consecrated the colors. The regimental color is of 
heavy blue silk; near the top is a crown beautifully embroidered with the 
motto, "Ready, aye ready." The number of the regiment is encircled by 
a beautiful wreath in appropriate colors and composed of the Rose, 
Thistle, Shamrock and Maple Leaf, while underneath are the words 
* Tenth Royal Regiment T.V." On the Union Jack is a crown of bullion, 
with "X Regiment T.V. Canada" of the same material. The staff of each 
color is surmounted by a lion and crown in solid silver, and a shield in- 
serted into each staff contains the legend that the colors were "Presented 
to the Tenth Royals by the Ladies of Toronto." The Tenth Royals in 1881 
became known as Tenth Battalion Royal Grenadiers. Water color.

540 TORONTO BOARD OF TRADE Members representing the Council 
and other officers of the Board, 1888. The Act incorporating the Board of 
Trade of the City of Toronto was passed by the Legislature of Canada on 
the 10th of February, 1845. George Percival Ridout, the first President, 
continued in office until 1851. In 1884 the Toronto Corn Exchange amal- 
gamated with the Board of Trade by Act of Parliament. Two years later 
negotiations were entered into for the purchase of a building site, and on 
29th January, 1891, the annual meeting was held in the new home of the 
Board, corner Front and Yonge streets. They removed to the Royal Bank 
Building in 1915. It is a noteworthy fact that the Toronto Board of Trade 
has not only played a part in the legislation of the country, but conserves 
the local interests of the people. The present President (1917) Is Mr. 
Arthur Hewitt, manager of the Consumers' Gas Co. Photograph, colored.

and the print, showing it as Mr. Howard primarily planned it, was made 
about 1847. In the actual erection, however, the original scheme was not 
strictly adhered to. This was the first institution of its kind to be built 
in Western Canada. Previous to its erection the insane were housed in

545 EASTERN VIEW OF YORK (TORONTO), 1810 Showing block- 
house destroyed by Americans in 1813. There has been some dispute as 
to the exact spot on which this blockhouse stood. Some writers claim that 
it was on the east side of the Don, but the best authorities state that it 
was on the west side of "The Little Don," for, in 1796-1815, the river was 
a delta at its mouth, one entrance being known as "The Little Don," and 
the other as "The Don." The blockhouse stood east of Berkeley street, 
south of Palace (Front) street, near the point where the Little Don entered 
the Bay. It was designed to protect the road or track leading to the 
peninsula, where there was a landing place on the south shore. There is 
now no double entrance or delta, as the river, by dredging, nas been made 
to flow in one stream into Toronto Bay. Water color by E. Wyly Grier.

RICHMOND STREETS This was a popular place of resort for many years, 
kept by Richard Crispin, first as a grocery shop, and about 1836 converted 
into a tavern. The house, a one and a half storey structure, with entrance 
on Richmond street, at that time known as Hospital street, was built on the 
corner of a plot of ground owned by John Long. Crispin, who had come 
to York in 1828 with Sir John Colborne, as his coachman, was a well-known, 
genial character in the locality, and was familiarly called "Coachman 
Crispin." The tavern, after his death, again became a shop. Water color.

rebuilt as it stands to-day (1917). Water color by F. V. Poole. 


STREETS, TORONTO, 1843-78 The building on the corner was the resi- 
dence of Chancellor Blake from 1849-57. It was then occupied by John 
Salt, a Toronto hatter, and from 1865-75 by a branch of the City Bank of 
Montreal. The building to the south was the residence of Dr. Adams, 
1855-65. It was afterwards, until 1873, occupied by the Grand Trunk Rail- 
way. Both buildings were demolished in 1878 to make way for W. R. 
Brock & Co.'s warehouse, which was destroyed by fire in 1904, but re- 
erected on the same site. Water color. Size' 5x6. 

552 OLD CRYSTAL PALACE, TORONTO, 1858-66 It was the first 
permanent Exhibition building, and stood on what was then known as 
Garrison Common, just south of the Provincial Lunatic Asylum. It was 
erected for the housing of exhibits other than live stock or heavy agricul- 
tural implements. When H.R.II. the Prince of Wales (King Edward VII.) 
visited Toronto during the Exhibition of 1860, a ball was held in this build- 
ing in his honor. The site is now (1917) occupied by manufacturing firms 
and the C.P.R. yards. Water color. Size 4 x t>. 

of Hon. James B. Macaulay, and later the Bishop Strachan School for Girls 
This brick residence on the south side of College street, near the present 
Yonge street, was erected about 1843 by Chief Justice Macaulay and by him 
called Wickham Lodge, after the village of Wickham, in Hampshire, Eng., 
where some of his relatives lived. Lady Macaulay adopted the spelling 
"Wykeham," which obtains to-day (1917). From 1869-1915 the building 
was occupied by the Bishop Strachan School, founded in 1867, for a time 
held at "Pinehurst," Grange road, and then in the Palace, residence of 
Bishop Strachan, Front street. The old home of the Chief Justice has 
been altered and enlarged considerably. The entire property, from it^ 
eastern extremity, west of Yonge, to its western boundary at Teraulay 
street, was sold in 1914 for business purposes, the school retaining the use 
of the buildings till the completion of their new structure on Russell Hill 
road, Toronto. The building is now a Military Convalescent Hospital.

554 OSGOODE HALL, TORONTO Home of the Superior Courts of 
Ontario In 1826 the Law Society of Upper Canada (incorporated 1797) 
purchased from Attorney-General Sir John Beverley Robinson six acres of 
land, at what is now (1917) the n.e. corner of Queen street and University 
avenue. In the midst of this plot, and facing Queen street, stands Osgoode 
Hall, named in honor of Hon. Wm. Osgoode, first Chief Justice of Upper 
Canada. The east wing, a square, brick, two-and-a-half storey structure, 
was begun in 1829, under supervision of Dr. Wm. Warren Baldwin, then 
treasurer of the Law Society, and completed in 1832. In 1844-6 a corre- 
sponding wing was built to the west, and the two buildings connected by a 
dome surmounted structure. In 1857-60 the entire edifice was renovated, 
the dome removed, a handsome facade of cut stone, inner area of Caen 
stone, court rooms, library and offices added. From time to time since, 
further additions have been made at the rear, and other improvements 
effected. On the occasion of the Prince of Wales' visit to Toronto in 1860 
an entertainment was given in his honor at Osgoode Hall, when the 
architectural lines of the exterior were brilliantly marked out by rows of 
minute gas-jets. The fence classical in design enclosing the grounds 
was erected just before the Prince's visit, and is one of the best pieces 
of iron work in Toronto. The entrance gate faces the Queen street front- 
age of 495 feet; the two flanks on University and Chestnut streets each 
measure 163 feet. The cost of the fence was approximately $20 a running 
foot, and $40 for each post, making a total of about $20,000, there being 16 
posts on each flank and 50 on the front. Water colors (three in one frame).

YORK (TORONTO), 1821 On Front street, between Peter and Windsor 
streets At that date these two residences were the most prominent build- 
ings on Front street. The Cruickshank house, used by invading officers 
during the occupation of York by the Americans, became the rear part of 
the later and more commodious residence shown in the picture. In 1863 
the house was divided into two dwellings, and in 1881 was finally demol- 
ished The builder, Hon. George Cruickshank, was Deputy Commissary- 
General of U.C. from 1797-1815. The residence to the right, behind the 
poplars was that of John Beikie, Clerk of the Executive Council of Upper 
Canada, 1820-37. This site is now (1917) occupied as railway yards.

561 OLD WADSWORTH MILL, WESTON, ONT., 1854-1917 The vil- 
lage of Weston, on the Humber River, was practically founded during the 
War of 1812-14 by the Government, which erected a mill there for the pur- 
pose of providing flour for the troops in active service. In 1814 the mill 
was leased by James Farr, and in turn transferred by him to Charles and 
William Wadsworth, in 1828. Subsequently the Wadsworth brothers pur- 
chased the freehold of the property from the Government. A second mill, 
the present (1917), was erected in 1854, four miles from the Humber's 
mouth as the crow flies. The first had four run of Burr millstones, while 
the present was designed for eight run of Burr stones. Water color by

Captain Bonnycastle (afterwards Sir Richard, author of "Canada 
and the Canadians in 1846" and "Canada As It Was, Is and 
May Be,") and Raymond Baby, .all of whom were military officials. It 
was used by the Royal Engineers as an office for a time. During Captain 
Bonnycastle's residence here in the forties, the beach below the house on 
the bay shore was the favorite bathing spot for the boys of Upper Canada 
College. About 1857 the dwelling was torn down. The land on which this 
residence stood was originally part of Front street, south of the south line 
of the street, where the Esplanade was made in 1854-7. The part south 
of Front street was cut away down to the level of the Esplanade. It is 
now part of the railway yards. Pen drawing, colored. Size 4 x 10. 

563 OAKHILL, YORK (TORONTO) The little log building was one 
of the earliest houses in York. It stood about half a mile north of what 
is now Queen street, a short distance northwest of the present (1917) site 
of Trinity College, and was built by Captain (Major-General) Aeneas Shaw, 
a member of the Executive Council of Upper Canada, shortly after he 
settled in York in 1793. It was in this log cabin that Major-Gen. Shaw 
had the honor of entertaining H.R.H. the Duke of Kent, father of Queen 
Victoria, on the occasion of his visit to York. A larger and more pre- 
tentious residence, said to have been the first private house of frame 
erected in York, was afterwards built, a little to the west of the log house. 
Up to 1871 Oakhill was occupied by Capt. Alexander Shaw, a descendant 
of the first owner. Water color. Size 5x7.

571 DUCK'S HOTEL AT THE HUMBER, 1873-1912 This popular 
roadhouse was originally on a part of the Gamble estate, from which it 
was purchased by John Strathy. Until its disposal by Mr. Strathy to John 
Duck in 1873 it was tenanted by Shepherd, the shoemaker. Duck con- 
ducted it as a tavern until his death in 1891, and for two years afterwards 
his widow carried on the business. During the next eight years it was run 
by various persons, and in 1901 was converted into a tenement house by 
Richard West, who in 1910 transferred it to Mrs. Crow. It was destroyed 
by fire in 1912. The entire vicinity has been entirely changed by the erec-

at the time of its erection known as Court House Square. It was built 
in 1824, at the same time as the second York Jail, n.e. corner King and 
Toronto streets, sixty feet north of the King street line. Both buildings 
were of red brick with stone trimmings, two storeys in height and in 
exactly the same style of architecture. After the erection of the new 
Court House on Adelaide street, in 1852, the old Court Room was used as 
an assembly room by teachers of dancing. Two well-known professors of 
the terpsichorean art, Mr. Mclndoe and Mr. James Thomson, taught from 
1852-58. The Church street front of the building was in the sixties ex- 
tended to the street line, and is now (1917) shops and offices. The north 


gable can yet be seen on Court street. To the left of picture will be

670 JONATHAN SCOTT'S HOUSE, TORONTO It was built about 
1825 by Jonathan Scott, a butcher in the market, and was situated at what 
is now the south-east corner of Yonge and McGill (Magill) streets, on land 
purchased by Mr. Scott from Capt. John McGill, whose name is perpetuated 
in McGill street. The Scott home was the only house of any size, for a 
time, between the Green Bush Tavern, Yonge and Shuter streets, and the 
Red Lion Hotel, Yorkville. It was torn down to make room for the old 
Y.M.C.A. building, erected 1888, used at present as a store and office build-

It was a small, picturesque, one-storey-and-a-half cottage, the first dwelling 
erected at the north-east corner of Church and Shuter. In the garden at 
the rear Logan cultivated vegetables and flowers, while his wife sold the 
produce at the market. Subsequently the cottage fell into decay and was 
replaced by a storey-and-a-half building, occupied for a number of years as 
a saloon by John Elliott. This, however, was demolished many years ago 
and a brick residence erected by the late Dr. J. F. W. Ross. Water color.

street and Yonge. Mr. Jesse Ketchum erected a large, white frame, square- 
turreted residence after the American style. The exact date of building 
is unknown, but it was probably 1813-14. About 1838-9 the dwelling was 
destroyed and the site cut up into building lots. The site is now the row

(Sherbourne), was erected in 1835 by John Sleigh, one of the best-known 
local cattlemen and butchers of his time. About 1870 he removed to 
Yorkville, where he died some years later. The house was demolished in 
1912. Water color by F. V. Poole. Size 5x6.

Market (Wellington), York and Palace (Front) streets, was the third 
brick building in York, the first being the Parliament buildings, and the 
second the St. George, or Canada Company building, n.e. corner King and 
Frederick streets. The residence was built by Rev. John Strachan, first 
Anglican Bishop of Toronto, and occupied by him until his death in 1867, 
then being rented for a boarding house. About 1900 it was demolished to 
make way for warehouses. Mr. J. Ross Robertson had a chair made of the 
oak threshold of the Bishop's home, and in 1904 presented it to the Uni- 
versity of Trinity College, which was founded by Bishop Strachan. The 
chair stands in the Convocation Hall of the College. Water color.

Queen street view It was a frame building, situated between James and 
Teraulay streets, and erected in 1827 by John Bird, who occupied it as a 
store and residence. After Mr. Bird's death the property became a tavern, 
and was kept by his son, Joseph, for some years. It subsequently 
passed through various hands, and finally came into the possession of 
William Charlton, who continued the business until about 1860. After his 
decease his widow carried it on for two years, when she remarried and 
transferred the property to James Spence, who in turn conveyed it to 
James Lennox. The site is now a part of the City Hall Square. Water

687 RICHARD HARPER'S HOUSE A pioneer Toronto residence, 
south-east corner Queen and Simcoe streets. Richard Harper, with his 
son John, came to York in 1818, and on his arrival purchased an acre of 
land at the s.e. cor. Lot (Queen) and Graves (Simcoe) streets. Some time 
afterwards he erected the frame dwelling shown in the picture, which, for 
a time, was the residence of the Rev. Joseph Hudson, chaplain to the 
forces. At a later date it served as the home of the Rev. John Wenham, 
curate of St. James' Church (Cathedral), and in 1849-51 was occupied by 
Mr. Owen, of the firm of Owen, Miller & Mills, King street, carriage manu- 
facturers. About 1855 the dwelling was converted into a shop. It was 
altered considerably in the summer of 1912, and now is a gents' furnishing 
store. Water color by F. V. Poole. Size 5x7. 


In 1827 John Doel, an Englishman who came to York from the United 

States in 1818, erected a two-storey frame residence at the north-west 

corner of Bay and Adelaide streets. At the rear he built a frame 

L"-shaped structure which was used as a brewery until 1847, when it 

was burned. Mr. Doel was associated with the leaders of the Reform 

rty, and during the exciting days preceding the Rebellion of 1837 the 

house and brewery formed the principal rendezvous of the agitators. Doel 

and Mackenzie, however, disagreed as to the method of procedure, and

Russell Abbey, as the charming one-storey frame dwelling was known, 
was built in 1798, near the bay shore, on Palace (Front) street, at the 
foot of what is now (1917) Princess street (formerly Princes). Here Mr. 
Russell, who was Administrator of Upper Canada from 1796-99, died in 
1808. The residence was afterwards for many years occupied by his 
sister, Miss Elizabeth Russell. She in turn willed the entire property of 
her late brother, to her cousins, the daughters of Wm. Willcocks, one of 
whom was the wife of Dr. William Warren Baldwin. After Miss Russell's 
death the house became the residence of Bishop Macdonell, and then ot 
Dr. Bradley, immigration agent. When the latter vacated it a negro family 
named Truss came into possession, carrying on a shoemaking business 
there. The Abbey was burned October, 1856. Water color. Size 4x7. 

690 BELLEVUE HOMESTEAD, TORONTO An early residence of 
the Denison family. In 1815 Lieut.-Colonel George Taylor Denison, son of 
Captain John Denison, purchased park lot 17 and part of 18, adjoining 
"Petersfield," the property of the Hon. Peter Russell, and occupied by 
Captain John Denison. On the land (part of Bellevue square) purchased 
by the younger Denison, "Bellevue" was built. It was a large, comfortable 
house, lying far back from Queen street, but visible from it through the 
trees. The present (1917) Denison avenue was originally the drive up to 
the old residence. Water color. Size 6x7. 

691 BERKELEY HOUSE, TORONTO Homestead of the Small fam- 
ily, south-west corner King arid Berkeley streets. The homestead was 
originally built of hewn timber by Major John Small, first Clerk of Execu- 
tive Council, U.C., and was one of the earliest dwellings in York (Toronto). 
It was subsequently re-constructed by Major Small's son, Charles Coxwell 
Small, and although elevated and enlarged, the design and even a portion 
of the inner substance of the original structure was preserved. The resi- 
dence, known as Berkeley House, was later converted into three dwellings, 
the central one containing the remains of the original log house. It still 
(1917) stands. Water color. Size 5x7. See 693. 

692 ONTARIO HOUSE North-west corner Church and Market 
(Wellington) streets, York (Toronto) In 1834 it was conducted by Wil- 
liam Campbell, who at one time kept the North American Hotel, Front 
street. In 1845 the Ontario House became the Wellington Hotel, with 
Russel Inglis as proprietor. It is said that the first room William Lyon 
Mackenzie entered on his return to Toronto from exile was the private 
sitting-room of this hostelry. Under Mr. Inglis' management the Welling- 
ton became so popular that he was forced to rent the two upper floors 
of the Coffin House Block, at the gore formed by Wellington, Front and 
Church streets, to supply adequate accommodation for his patrons. After 
giving up the Wellington, Mr. Inglis for a long time conducted the Western 
Hotel, north side of Wellington, between Scott and Yonge streets. His 
former hostelry became a tenement house and was eventually demolished 
to make way for the Bank of Toronto. Water color; Size 5x6.

trance The St. Lawrence Market was first opened for business in April, 
1851. The main entrance was then in the centre of the frontage on King 
street, and consisted of a corridor with a line of shops stretching to the 
east and west on "Both sides through to Front. In addition there was a 
transverse piazza, one hundred feet deep, over which, on the first floor, 
were various public rooms. In 1904 the present market south of Front 
was completed and the lower part of the market remodelled, the shops 



being removed and made into an arena. In 1912 the arena was altered and 
portions rented on the east and west sides to meat companies, and used 
by farmers' wagons on market days. Water color. Size 5x6. See 701-2.

site of the present St. Lawrence Hall and Upper Market. The first 
market, which was established by Lieutenant-Governor Peter Hunter in 
1803, was simply wooden shambles, forty-five feet long and thirty feet 
wide, running north and south, and situated in the middle of the block 
now occupied by the north part of the present (1917) St. Lawrence Market. 
In 1807 the Market Square was enclosed on the east, west and south sides 
with a picketing and oak ribbon, and in 1831 the building was demolished.

the north part of the block facing King street, and now (1917) occupied 
by the St. Lawrence Hall and Upper Market. It was a quadrangular brick 
building, which was completed in 1833. Around all four sides of it, 
above the butchers' stalls, ran a wooden gallery, which at a political meet- 
ing in 1834 was so overcrowded that a portion of it fell, resulting in loss 
of life and severe injuries to numbers of the audience. The front of the 
building was destroyed in the great fire of 1849, and this led to the de- 
molition of the entire market. Water color from a pen drawing made in 
1848 by Rev. Dr. Henry Scadding. Size 5x7. 

697 THIRD MARKET PLACE, 1851-1917 After the great fire ef 
1849, in which the front portion of the second market was destroyed, the 
present (1917) St. Lawrence Hall and Market was built, occupying the 
entire square bounded by King, Jarvis, Front and West Market streets. 
The St. Lawrence Hall was from its erection the finest hall in Toronto. 
Every public meeting, concert, oratorio, ball, bazaar, minstrel show, soiree, 
panorama, assembly or public dinner, down to 1871, was held in this hall. 
Great singers and speakers have also -been heard within its walls Jenny 
Lind, Mile. Piccolomini, Anna Bishop, Adelina Patti, Elihu Burritt, "the 
learned blacksmith," Horace Greeley, D'Arcy McGee, Sir John A. Mac- 
donald, George Brown, Bayard Taylor. The upper market, built 1902-3, 
in rear of the main structure on King street, is now used for farmers' 
wagons, while the butchers' stalls have been removed to the new or Lower 
Market, south of Front street, which was commenced in the summer of 
1899 and completed in 1901. Water color by F. V. Poole. Size 6x7. 


as Dunnstable. About 1820 the Hon. John Henry Dunn, Receiver-General 
of Upper Canada, built the two-storey red brick mansion of the picture at 
the head of Catharine street (Richmond), and here he lived until the death 
of his wife. In 1837 Chief Justice McLean, who had come to York from 
Cornwall, bought the residence, occupying it until his death in 1865, when 
it became the home of his son, Mr. A. G. McLean. In 1900 it 
was demolished, and Catharine street, which ran along the south side of 
the property, was opened up, connecting Richmond with Spadina avenue.

Masonic Order, being a well-known member of St. Andrew's Lodge. The 

J2; ?? Was ori S inall y a part of the property of the Hon. Peter Russell; in 

Dr. W. Warren Baldwin erected his town residence on the site, and 


this dwelling was subsequently conducted as a private hotel by Mrs. John 
Ellah; from 1863-4 it was used as a military hospital, and afterwards as 
offices for the Toronto, Grey, Bruce and Nipissing Railroad. Later it was 
the site of a large Warehouse, destroyed in the great fire of 1904, and since 
that date has been vacant. Water color. Size 4x7. 

TORONTO About 1834 the two-storey brick building at the corner, on 
part of the McCutcheon property, was erected by John Wesley, who kept a 
seed store there for several years. The property was subsquently pur- 
chased by William Reynolds, a baker. Since then it has passed through 
various hands, as have the two brick buildings south of and adjoining the 
corner, also erected by Mr. Reynolds about 1848. In 1889 these buildings 
were demolished, and a hotel and several stores now (1917) occupy the 
site, water color. Size 5x7. 

701 OLD ST. LAWRENCE MARKET ARCADE, 1851-1904 Looking

market was the arcade, two hundred feet long by twenty feet wide. On 
both sides, running north and south from King to Front, were fruit and 
fancy shops at the north end, and butcher shops at" the south. At the 
Christmas season during the fifties the arcade was one of the sights of 
Toronto, with its glittering toy stalls, profusion of evergreens and well- 
stocked, gaily decorated butcher shops. In 1904 the old market was con- 
verted into an arena, and is now used for farmers' wagons and the butcher 
shops were removed to the new building south of Front. Water color.

at this corner a frame hotel kept by a colored man named Snow; but 
about 1848 the frame building was demolished and a brick structure erected 
by Joshua Beard, a one-time Mayor of Toronto. The new hotel was occu- 
pied successively by Snow & Wright, Robert Beard, Azro Russell and 
John Montgomery, proprietor of the famous Montgomery's Tavern of 
Rebellion times. During the tenancy of Beard and Russell the upper 
floors of the building were occupied by the Masonic and Orange Orders.

ally the home of the old Commercial Bank of the Midland District (now 
the Merchants'), and then became the third office of the Globe. The first 
office of the Globe was on Yonge street, west side, next door to its present 
building. The second office was over the Nordheimer music store, King 
east. The fourth is on the south-west corner of Yonge and Melinda streets. 
During the Globe regime the east end of the King west structure was 
occupied by Angus Dallas, woodenware dealer, the outbuilding to the left, 
or east, by L. D. Campbell, an American, who established the first news 
depot in Toronto, and Wm. Faulkner, shoe dealer. The store to the west 
was that of John Goedike, grocer. Water color. Size 7x7.

first white child born in York, and who afterwards became one of the first 
aldermen of the corporation, when the town of York became the City of 
Toronto. Subsequent to its construction, the hostelry was renovated 
throughout and somewhat enlarged. It was latterly known as the Beau- 
champ House. riTl902 it was demolished, the site now being part of the

accommodation of travellers in the district, subsequently known as York- 
ville, being built some time between 1808-10 by Daniel Tiers, and very 
popular as a meeting room and ball room for more than a quarter of a 
century. The old hostelry continued its hospitality for nearly eighty years,

711-14 Jails of York and Toronto, from 1800-1917. 

711 FIRST JAIL, 1800-24 Situated on the south side of King street, 
at the corner of Leader lane. "It was," says Dr. Scadding in "Toronto of 
Old," "a squat, unpainted, wooden building with hipped roof concealed from 
persons passing in the street by a tall cedar stockade, such as those we 
see surrounding a Hudson's Bay post or a military woodyard." On dif- 
ferent occasions the sheriff complained that the condition of the building 
was detrimental to the health of the persons confined there, and in 1824 a 
new jail was built. The brick buildings, erected about 1840, now (1917) 
occupy the site of the first jail, as does Leader lane, which runs south 
from King street. Water color. Size 4x7. 

712 SECOND JAIL, 1824-40 A plain, substantial, two-storeyed red 
brick building, near the north-east corner of King and Toronto streets, at 
what would now be the corner of Toronto and Court streets. On three 
sides it was enclosed by a fifteen-foot picket fence, and in the jail yard so 
formed was erected the gallows on which Lount and Matthews were hanged 
in 1838. The gallows stood to the east of the building, and just about thirty 
feet south of the south line of the present Court street. A Court House was 
also built in 1824, the corner-stones of bo-th it and the Jail being laid by the 
Lieut.-Governor on the same date. The former stood on the northwest 
corner of King and Church streets, about a hundred feet north of King The 
i stocks stood just west of the Court House. The Jail building was 
remodelled, and is now (1917) the York Chambers, Toronto and Court 
streets. Water color from a drawing by J. G. Howard Size 5x7 


713 THIRD JAIL, 1840-60 The large, new jail, built of Kingston 
grey cut limestone, and surrounded by a stone wall about twelve feet high, 
was situated on Palace street (Front east), at the foot of Berkeley, the latter 
street being in those days continued down to the waterside in a narrow 
road. It was almost on the site of the third jail that the first frame build- 
ings in York were erected before the end of the eighteenth century for the 
use of Parliament and the Law Courts. These buildings, with the books, 
documents and records contained in them, were destroyed in 1813, when 
the town was captured by the Americans. Five years later a plain, cubical, 
brick block was erected on the same site for the use of the Legislature, 
but this was accidentally destroyed by fire in 1824. The third jail, after 
being superseded, was occupied by a safe manufacturing company for a 
time, later being purchased by the Consumers' Gas Company and new 
buildings erected on the site. Water color. Size 7x8. 

714 FOURTH JAIL, 1865-1917 On the north side of Gerrard street 
east, at Riverdale Park, just east of the Don. It is a massive-looking 
structure of white brick and cut stone, and is (1917) still in use. It was in the 
process of erection in 1858, but partly burned five years later, before being 
completed, and was not occupied as a jail until 1865. Water color.

1830-37 Built in 1830 by the late Dr. William Warren Baldwin, surgeon-in- 
chief of the military forces in 1812. The property originally belonged to 
Hon. Peter Russell, Administrator of Upper Canada on Simcoe's return to 
England. On his death it came into possession of his sister. The estate 
finally became Dr. Baldwin's, through his wife and her sister, cousins of 
Miss Russell. Soon after falling heir to the estate, Dr. Baldwin laid out 
Spadina on a large scale, and on the hill, nearly three miles from the 
lake, he built his new home. The house was destroyed by fire in 1837 and 
rebuilt the following year. "Spadina" is an Indian word, signifying "A

Warren Baldwin erected as a town house a substantial brick mansion at 
the norith-east corner of Front and Bay streets, on the site of the pic- 
turesque old cottage occupied by Major Hillier. Hon. Robert Baldwin also 
occupied the paternal residence, and later the dwelling became in turn 
Ellah's Hotel, a military hospital, and the offices of the Toronto, Grey, 
Bruce and Nipissing R.R. It was demolished about 1884. A large ware- 
house stood on the site until the great fire, of 1904, when it was destroyed, 
and up to 1917 has not been rebuilt. Water color by F. V. Poole. Size

719 SHOP OF PAUL BISHOP, TORONTO It was a large frame 
building, a little distance back from the street, and fronting southward on 
Duke, at the north-east corner of Duke and Caroline (Sherbourne) streets. 
Here Bishop plied his trade as a blacksmith for many years. When T. D. 
Harris came into possession of the property he enlarged and remodelled 
the shop, moving it to the street line and dividing it into two two-storey

1838-66 Subsequent to the death of Dr. William Warren Baldwin, "Spa- 
dina" passed into the hands of his sons, Hon. Robert Baldwin and Captain 
Augustus Baldwin. The former died there in 1858. It is somewhat of a 
coincidence that Dr. Baldwin wished to establish a family in Canada 
whose head was to be maintained by the proceeds of an entailed estate, and 
his son, Hon. Robert Baldwin, carried through the Legislature of Canada 
the abolition of the rights of primogeniture. In 1866 the property was pur- 
chased by the late James Austin, president of the Dominion Bank and of 
the Consumers' Gas Company. Water color. Size 5x7. See 715. 

721 GEORGE RIDOUT'S RESIDENCE, 1820 North-west corner of 
Dorset and Wellington streets, York, (Toronto) The house, in its day 
considered a very stately mansion, was built by Mr. Ridout in the centre 
of a large block of beautifully wooded land. On Mr. Ridout's disposing of 
the property, it became the home of Bishop Stewart, second bishop of 
Quebec. Later Capt. Philpotts, R.B., Judge Jones, Dr. Boys, Bursar ef 
King's College, and Samuel Sherwood, City Registrar, lived there. The 
mansion eventually became a lodging house, and in 1887 was demolished. 
The C.P.R. freight yards now occupy the site. Water color. Size 5x7. 

722 HOLLAND HOUSE, TORONTO South side of Wellington street 
west, now (1917) No. 63. Built in 1831 by the Hon. Henry John Boulton, 
and named after Holland House, Kensington, London, Eng., where the 
Hon. Mr. Boulton was born. The Toronto mansion was a large, turreted, 
castle-like building, stuccoed and lined in imitation of brownstone. Mr. 
Boulton was from 1831-2 Solicitor-General for U.C., and in 1833 was ap- 
pointed Chief Justice of Newfoundland. On his departure from Toronto, 
Holland House became the residence of Mr. Truscott, the first private 
banker of Toronto, and afterwards of the Elmsley and Sherwood families. 
It was then sold by the Boultons to Alexander Manning, ana subsequently 
became the quarters of the Reform Club. In 1904 it was demolished. 
When the Earl and Countess Dufferin were in Toronto in 1872 they stayed 
at Holland House. Water color by F. V. Poole. Size 5x7. See 704. 

Mr. James Austin took possession of "Spadina" in 1866 the property in- 
cluded eighty acres of land, used chiefly for farming. The house was 
almost entirely demolished and rebuilt on the old foundations. In the 
eighties Mr. Austin disposed of the western half of "Spadina," his son, A. 
W. Austin, and daughter, Mrs. G. A. Arthurs, inheriting the remainder. Sir 
John Eaton now (1917) occupies a new residence on the site of Mrs. 
Arthurs' home, while to the west of the Austin house, enlarged and occu- 
pied by Mr. A. W. Austin, is "Casa Loma," residence of Sir Henry Pellatt. 
The view gives the homestead during the lifetime of Mr. James Austin.

east, near the Don Bridge, Toronto. William Smith, Jr., acquired the 
western portion of his father's lot at the north-east corner of Duke (King) 
and Caroline (Sherbourne) streets, and built a frame addition to his 
father's house. After the latter's death in 1819, the son occupied the pro- 
perty until 1832. In the meantime George Playter had erected a dwelling 
near the Don, and this was purchased by William Smith, Jr., who moved 
it across the road to land bought from John Scadding. An addition was 
made to the house for the accommodation of employes of a tannery erected 
by Mr. Smith, and when he decided to remove from King street, another 
addition was made on the east side. John Smith came into possession of 
the property on his father's death. Water color. Size 6x7. 


side Richmond street, between Yonge and Bay, Toronto The corner-stone 
of Richmond Street Methodist Church was laid 20th August, 1844, and the 
dedication took place 29th June, 1845. It was a plain structure, the unique 
portico with four pillars being its only external ornamentation. In 1888 
the building was dismantled, and since 1890 has been occupied with addi- 
tions by the Methodist Book Room. The site is now (1917) Nos. 29-33

ten-acre lot on the south side of St. Clair avenue from a Mr. Burns, at that 
time a market gardener on the south-east corner of Bloor street and Spa- 
dina road. The property, on part of which the Tattle homestead was built, 
extended from Avenue road on the east, to Poplar Plains road on the west. 
In 1880 Mrs. Tattle, who survived her husband quite a number of years, 
sold the property to Joseph Francis, a son-in-law, who in 1907 laid it out 
in building lots, and on it now stand the homes of some of Toronto's most 
prominent citizens. Water color by J. T. Rolph. Size 7 x 14.

in 1893. To the right of the picture is a two-storey house with a flat roof, 
built about 1879, and at one time owned by Patrick Gray, who lived at 
Hanlan's Point, and also had an hotel there. The house was torn down

R.C.Y.C. with a handsome champion cup, which is still styled the Prince 
of Wales' Cup, and sailed for annually. In 1865 the "Arrow" won the cup, 
her owner at that time being G. H. Wyatt, of Toronto. She was later 
owned by the late Judge Hamilton, of Kingston. The "Gorilla" was winner 
of the Prince of Wales' Cup in 1862-3-4, R. W. Standley being her owner in 
those years, and in 1872 she again appears as winner under the ownership 
of Capt. Gifford, of Cobourg. She was originally the American yacht

structure, that remains intact, of pioneer labor in York. Queenston and 
Kingston stone were the materials used. The Lakeside Home for 
Little Children, the summer sanitarium of the Hospital for Sick Chil- 
dren. Toronto, was founded in 1882, by J. Ross Robertson, and in July of 
that year the first detachment of convalescents from the mother hospital 
(then on Elizabeth street) was sent over. In 1891 a new up-to-date 
home was erected by Mr. Robertson, and on the 5th September formally 
transferred to the trustees of the Hospital for Sick Children. Since that 
time thousands of Ontario's little ones have been placed on the road to 
health by their summer stay at the Lakeside Home. The main building was

744 EASTWOOD HOUSE, TORONTO A stone dwelling, built by 
John Eastwood, opposite the present (1917) Todmorden Hotel, on the old 
Mill road leading to the Don Paper Mills, and now known as Broadview 
avenue. After the death of Parshall Terry, in 1808, his grist mills came 
into possession of Colin Skinner and John Eastwood, brother-in-law of the 
Helliwells, and in 1825, in addition to the grist mills erected by Terry, 
Skinner and Eastwood started a paper mill, the only one in Upper Canada, 
with the exception of that of Matthew Crooks at Flamboro'. It was 
Mr. Eastwood who gave the English name of Todmorden to the village 
overlooking the mills. Water color by Owen Staples. Size 12 x 14.

primarily a grist mill, built in 1794, is just below Todmorden, on lot 13, 
township of East York. It was operated by Mr. Timothy Skinner for some 
years, and then Mr. Colin Skinner, who took Mr. John Eastwood into part- 
nership; they used the building as a paper mill. It is said that the 
first paper in Upper Canada was made in this mill in 1826. The Flamboro' 
mill also claimed the prize offered by the Provincial Government, and the 
claim was compromised by a division of the money. In 1847 the property 
passed into the hands of the Taylor Bros. During their time it was twice 
destroyed by fire, and once during the ownership of the present owner, 
Mr. Robert Davies. The walls, which were of stone, stood, however, and 
a new roof and floors made the building as it was first built. Water color,

757-9 Registry Offices, County of York, 1829-1917. 

757 REGISTRY OFFICE, COUNTY OF YORK, 1829-50 In 1796 a regis- 
try office was established for the Home District there was no County of 
York at the time and Mr. Thomas Ridout appointed first registrar. Dur- 
ing his term of office and that of his immediate successors the records 
were kept in private dwellings. Later Samuel Ridout, too, conducted affairs 
of the registry office in private houses for a time, but in 1829 built at his 
own expense a small brick building at 18 Newgate street, north side, now 
(1917) No. 102 Adelaide street east. A law was passed in 1849 that the 
registry office should no longer be kept in a private residence, but must be 
maintained in a public building, and at the same time the office was estab- 
lished as the county registry. The cottage in rear of the Newgate street 
building was that of Henry Mulholland, caretaker. Water color by John 
W. Cotton. Size 5x6. 

758 REGISTRY OFFICE, COUNTY OF YORK, 1850-75 In accord- 
ance with the Act of 1849, the county built this one-storey, stone, fireproof 
building next and north of the present (1917) office of the Gas Company, 
on the east side of Toronto street, just north of Court street. The county 
and city registrarships were divided in 1859, when the office of the latter 
was removed to the Royal Insurance building, southeast corner Wellington

ner of Richmond and Berti (Clare) streets. In 1849 a number of gentle- 
men, chiefly architects, land surveyors and civil engineers, met in the 
office of Kivas Tully to consider the advisability of forming an organiza- 
tion which would unite the three professions throughout the country. In 
1850 a constitution was adopted, Mr. (Sir) Sandford Fleming and Mr. E. R. 
Passmore being the leading organizing spirits. From 1864-76 the Cana- 
dian Institute so formed met in the building shown in the picture. It was 
built in 1850 by George Bilton, and first occupied by Dr. Primrose, who 
was followed by Thos. Haworth, hardware merchant. In 1876 it was torn 
down and a brick building erected, which was used by the institute until 
1905. When the latter removed to its present (1917) home, 198 College 
street, in order to make its valuable library more accessible to the Univer- 
sity professors and students, the old property was sold to the Sons of 
England. On April 2nd, 1914, the institute had its title formally changed 
to "Royal Canadian Institute." Water color. Size 4x7.

Congregational church (second) stood on the north-east corner of Bay and 
Adelaide streets, on the same site as the first church, burned in February, 
1855; was dedicated 26th September, 1856. It had a spire (its predecessor 
having had a tower) which was blown down about two o'clock on the after- 
noon of the 12th April, 1865, in a terrific wind storm that swept Toronto. 
The spire was not rebuilt, but replaced by the lower portion being made 
into a square tower. The last service in the old church was held 3rd 
Dec., 1882, and the following March the congregation moved to College 
street, near Elizabeth. The Bay street building was used by a lithograph- 
ing company, and as a theatre, until 1884. It was then demolished. The

762 RESIDENCE OF T. D. HARRIS, TORONTO When Duke street - 
was fashionable In 1832, Mr. J. S. Howard, at that time postmaster of 
York (Toronto), built, as a residence for himself, a large three-storey red 
brick building on the north side of Duke street, No. 28, just east of George 
street. For a time part of the building was used as a post office. Mr. 
Howard vacated about 1838, and Mr. M. Davidson Murray lived there until 
1845. Later, Mr. T. D. Harris occupied the residence, which was one of 
the best equipped of early Toronto homes. Mr. Harris was prominent in 
civic matters. He was chief engineer of the fire brigade, 1838-41; carried 
on the leading hardware business in Toronto, and from 1870-2, after his ' 
retirement, filled the position of harbor master. His death took place in 
January, 1873. The old residence is still standing (1917) as No. 42 Duke 
street, a part of De La Salle Institute. Water color. Size 4x5. 

763 BARRETT'S HOTEL, NEWTON BROOK, 1790 On the south-east

part of 1811 Royal Arch Lodge No. 16 and its chapter removed from York 
to "Yonge street," selecting. as a meeting place the home of Bro. Alfred 
Barrett, which was used as a tavern and frequented by farmers on their 
way to and from the town. It is not improbable that the anticipated 
trouble with the United States had something to do with the removal of 
the lodge from York; also a large proportion of the brethren lived on 
Yonge street. The old tavern was altered and improved in 1840, and until 
1856 the lodge room was in existence. Now (1917) the site is vacant.

Arthur Coffin lived in the cottage for over sixty years. It was built about 
1820 on the west side of Crookshank's lane, now Bathurst street, at what 
would now be the south-west corner of Bathurst and Herrick streets. The 
Hon. George Crookshank (Cruickshank) owned property extending 
from Queen street to the north of Davenport road, which remained in his 
possession until 1851. Drawing in water color by J. O. Fowler, 1871. Size 

1870 This pretty roughcast residence was built in 1851 by the late James 
Bain, bookseller, who died in 1908. It stood on the east side of Sherbourne 
street on a plot of ground between the n.e. and s.e. corners of Sherbourne 
street and the present Wilton avenue. Beech street (Wilton avenue) was 
extended from Seaton to Sherbourne, according to a plan dated 1857, and 
filed in the registry office. The property for this extension had been pur- 


chased, one parcel from James Bain on 13th Oct., 1855, and the rest from 
James Humphrey on 23rd Nov. of the same year. The Bain residence 
was moved about 50 feet to the n.e. corner of Beech and Sherbourne, and 
was occupied by Mr. Bain until 1900, when he moved to Kew Beach. In 
1878 a by-law was passed changing Crookshank street, which ran from

street. After being given up by its original occupant, the business was 
conducted for a time as Castle Frank Brewery, under the proprietorship of 
Mr. John Rose. About 1864 brewing was discontinued there, and the east 
end of the building was tenanted by an old Irishman, and after him by

afterwards conducting a brewery at the south-east corner of Sherbourne 
and Duchess streets. At an early date he built for himself a frame dwell- 
ing on the King street site, but about 1829 had the old building torn down 
and on almost the exact site erected a more commodious, two-storey brick 
residence. On Dr. Stoyell's death the house was occupied by a Roman 
Catholic priest until its purchase by Mr. Thomas Helliwell, who made it 
his residence. The Victor Inn, No. 282A King street east, is now

residence was designed by John G. Howard for Mr. Jones, who lived here 
for a time. The property afterwards passed into the hands of Captain James 
McGill Strachan, son of Bishop Strachan, and was occupied as a residence

815 FREELAND'S SOAP FACTORY, 1 832-65 Shortly after his ar- 
rival in York (Toronto), Peter Freeland erected a factory for the manu- 
facture of soap, at the foot of Yonge street on the east side, on 
property purchased from Judge Sherwood and Peter McDougall. Owing 
to the fact that almost the whole property was land covered with water, 
the soap works had to be built on cribs sunk with stone. On the death of 
the first owner, in 1861, the business was carried on by Robert Freeland, a 
son, until the demolition of the. building in 1865 to make room for the 
Great Western Railway passenger station, which is now (1917) the Grand

of Chief Justice Hagarty. Mr. Crawford resided there until his appoint- 
ment as Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, 1873, and on his removal to 
Government House transferred the old mansion to the Provincial Govern- 
ment. For some years the property was used as the Attorney-General's

Hotel, built by Charles Nurse, 1874-5, and destroyed by fire in 1912. The 
bridge shown spanning the Humber was erected in 1874, and in that year 
also Mr. O. L. Hicks built boathouses shown, which from time to time were 
torn down and enlarged. In 1893 Mr. Hicks sold out to his brother, Samuel 
Hicks, who five years later transferred them to Capt. Robert Maw. A 
number of years ago the present (1917) owner, Mr. I. N. Devins, pur- 
chased them. In the distance to the right is seen the peak of the hotel 
built by John McDowell, 1852-3. On McDowell's death, in 1870, the hostelry 
came into the possession of his son, William, and since has passed through 
many hands. The G.T.R. acquired the property in 1911. The railway and 
other improvements have entirely changed the appearance of this vicinity.

to the philanthropist, William Wilberforce. In 1836 he came to Canada 
with Sir Francis Bond Head as private secretary. From 1841-50 the house 
was occupied by Mr. John Robertson, dry goods merchant, and father of 
Mr. John Ross Robertson. Here the latter was born, Dec. 28th, 1841. The 
family removed to the next house north (shown in the picture), remaining 
there until their removal in 1857 to John street. From 1851-4 Col. Page, of 
the Royal Engineers, and from 1854-5, Mrs. Justina Scobie, widow of Hugh

Church streets, and provided for the erection of a Guild Hall, Court House, 
Post Office, Public Library and Merchants' Exchange. Had these plans 
been carried out the old jail and court house on the north-east corner of 
King and Toronto, and the north-west corner of King and Church streets, 
respectively, erected in 1824, were to have been converted into the city 
and district jails, police office, and temporary lock-up room. The estimated 
cost of erecting the buildings was 60,000. About 1842 the open space 
known as Court House Square, between King, Toronto, Church and Court 
streets, was sold and shops built thereon. Water color from original, by

land on the east bank of the Humber River, giving his property the name 
of High Park. On the western side of this piece of land he erected in the 
same year, Colborne Lodge, so named after Sir John Colborne, Lieutenant- 
Governor of Upper Canada, 1828-35, and Mr. Howard's first benefactor and

the home of Chief Justice Blmsley, and subsequently purchased by the 
Government. The design shown was made in 1833 by John G. Howard, 
the well-known Toronto architect, and was intended "for the information 
of Sir John Colborne to shew the impropriety of spending money in repair- 
ing the old Government House." The site suggested was on "the military 
reserve to the west of Peter street, on Front street," and the estimated 
cost of erection was 50,000. The structure shown was never erected.

At the age of fifteen was sent to sea, but compelled to abandon the life; 
took up land surveying, engineering and architecture. In 1832 emigrated 
to Canada, with his wife, settling in York. The following year Sir John 
Colborne obtained for Mr. Howard the appointment of drawing master at 
U.C.C., and in 1843 he was appointed City Surveyor, subsequently becom- 
ing City Engineer. Laid out the Island in 1846, and also surveyed the 
ground and made plans for St. James' Cemetery. In 1873 Mr. Howard 
conveyed 120 acres of High Park to the Corporation of Toronto by gift as a 
public park forever, and the remaining 45 acres of his estate were added 
after his death. He was buried with Masonic honors in High Park. Water

Colborne, K.C.B., Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada, 1828-35. It was 
intended for King's College, to be erected in Queen's Park, Toronto. With

Mr. Howard also superintended the building of the structure, which re- 
placed the second Brockville Court House, a brick edifice erected in 1824. 
The naming of the figure of Justice, which surmounts the present building, 
is an amusing incident. Among the crowd assembled to see the figure 
raised, were Major Alexander Grant, a man about 6 ft. 5 in. in height, and 
otherwise large in proportion, and Paul Glassford, small of stature, who 
had been chairman of the Building Committee. The former was a practi- 
cal joker and liked nothing better than to have a joke on Glassford. He 
laughingly called the crowd's attention to the difference in size between 
Mr. Glassford and his "child." But, when the figure was in position, Mr. 
Glassford, in response to the cry, "name, name," looked at it, then at 
Major Grant, and, touching his hat, said, "Her .name is Sally Grant." The 
joke was turned on the notorious joker, and through the heat of summer 
and snows of winter "Sally Grant" has held the scales of justice on 
Brockville's Court House since 1845. Water color from original, by J. G.

York was given in the ball room of Frank's Hotel, a two-storey frame 
building on the north-west corner of West Market street and Market lane 


(Colborne street). Mr. Allan Macnab, afterwards Sir Allan, was one of 
the amateur performers in the pioneer theatre, acquitting himself so well 
that he was seriously advised to become a professional actor. The play- 
house, although its appointments were of the most unpretentious character, 
was very popular. Water color, by F. V. Poole. Size 4x4.

was fitted up as a theatre about 1829. Performances were given here by 
a local amateur club. Water color, by F. V. Poole. Size 3^x4. 

851 THIRD THEATRE, 1834-7 South side King street, west of 
Jordan, on part of site of Bank of Commerce. It was a frame building 
40 x 60, erected in 1818, by Mr. Fetch, as the first place of public worship 
of the Wesleyan Methodists in York. In the same building where the 
eloquence of early Methodist ministers resounded, playgoers of York also 
attended ere long, for on the completion of the Adelaide Street Methodist 
church, Waugh Bros., confectioners on King street, obtained possession 
of the old chapel and fitted it up as a place of amusement. The first repre- 
sentation given here was a panorama of the "Burning of Moscow," exhibited 
in the latter part of 1834. Water color, by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x7. 

852 FOURTH THEATRE, 1834-8 From time to time theatrical per- 
formances were given in a barn-like frame building, some sixty feet long, 
situated on the north side of Front street, east of Church. There was no 
gallery, but the ground floor seated an audience of between two and three 
hundred. The appointments of the place were of the most primitive sort, 
candles being the illuminants; nevertheless the acting was at times very 
Good. Mr. and Mrs. Thorne, who played comedy here, were favorites and

near York, on the lot adjoining the Shakespeare Hotel, n.e. corner of King 
and York. The Theatre Royal, as the new playhouse was named, was of a 
more pretentious character than its predecessors. It was a large frame 
structure, erected shortly before the Mackenzie Rebellion of 1837, and was 
originally a cabinet or carpenter workshop. The seats were arranged in 
tiers, in much the same fashion as they are at the present day. The 
popular Thornes graced the boards at this theatre also. In the days of the 
old Royal ladies had not begun to frequent theatres much. Water color, by 
F. V. Poole. Size 5x7. 

854 SIXTH THEATRE, 1841-3 This theatre, known as Deering's, 
was owned by the then proprietor of the Ontario House. It was situated 
on the east side of Scott, and extended from Front to Wellington streets, 
the main entrance being on Front street. The building, which was of 
frame, was well patronized, but its existence as a playhouse was short. It 
was used subsequently as an immigration office and later became a 
tavern. Water color. Size 5x7. 

855 SEVENTH THEATRE, 1840-50 On the west side of William street, 
above Queen. A company of amateurs, notable among them being Alex- 
ander Jacques, printer, fitted up an old barn for theatrical performances, 
giving various plays there for about four years. This theatre had its in- 
ception in an old barn on Colborne street, near the corner of Leader lane, 
owned by Mr. John Munn, but this building was destroyed by fire, and the 
company had to seek quarters elsewhere. From 1845 the William street 
theatre was used for local negro minstrel shows. Water color. Size 5x7. 


856 EIGHTH THEATRE, 1849-53 This theatre, a frame building, 
about seventy feet long, and having a lean-to at the south end to make 
room for the stage, had been used as a coach and guard house for Govern- 
ment House. It was situated on the south side of King street west, near 
the ravine or creek that at one time crossed between Simcoe and John 
streets, and was managed by T. P. Besnard, subsequently manager of the 
Royal Lyceum. A number of performances were given in this building 
by the Garrison amateurs; but it never became popular, being too far 
from the town of those days. Water color. Size 5x7. 

857 NINTH THEATRE, 1 848-73 Known as the Royal Lyceum, 
south side King street, between Bay and York. It was built by John 
Ritchey, the first occupant being John S. Potter. About 1850 T. P. Besnard 
undertook the management of the house. He persuaded John Nickinson 
and his daughters to come over from Buffalo. A managerial partnership 
was entered into between Mr. Besnard and Mr. Nickinson, the latter in 
1853 assuming sole management of the Royal Lyceum, which he consider- 
ably altered and improved. He it was who induced the great actors of the 
day to visit Toronto. In 1872 Mrs. Morrison (Charlotte Nickinson) took 
the management of the Lyceum. About a year later the building was 
burned, but was rebuilt. During Mrs. Morrison's management many stars 
played here. Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x7. 

858 TENTH THEATRE, 1874 North side King street west, between 
Bay and York, now (1917) Nos. 90-4, about a hundred feet back from the 
street. It was reached by a passageway nearly opposite that leading to 
the Royal Lyceum. The playhouse shown, in which were seen some good 
performances, was known as the Queen's Theatre. Tom C. King, a great 
Macbeth, played there in tragedy. Water color. Size 5x7. 

859 WELLS RESIDENCE, TORONTO The comfortable, old- 
fashioned residence on the high ground overlooking Davenport road, just 
north-east of Bathurst, was erected by Col. Joseph Wells, of the 43rd Mon- 
mouthshire Regiment, and a veteran of the Peninsular War. It was built 
on the site of a smaller dwelling purchased by Colonel Wells in 1820, and, 
after his retirement from the army, he lived here until his death in 1853. 
Until 1873 Colonel Frederick Wells, a son, occupied the residence, which 
afterwards passed into the hands of the second occupant's daughter, Mrs. 
De Pencier. Water color. Size 5x7. 

860 AMERICAN HOTEL, TORONTO, 1 841 -89 About 1840 Mr. 
Rennie purchased the north-east corner of Front and Yonge streets, form- 
erly owned by the late Chief Justice Scott, erecting thereon a brick 
building. It was known for many years as the American Hotel, and was 
one of the best-known hostelries in Canada until its demolition in 1889 to 
make room for the Board of Trade building. When Charles Dickens 
visited Toronto in 1842 he was a guest in this house. Mr. Pearson, an 
American, was the popular landlord for many years, and he was succeeded 
Ly the late David Walker, before the days of the Walker House. Pen draw-

formerly known as Bellis' Hotel. West of the Eagle House is the Assembly 
Room, erected 1849-50. Pen drawing, colored. Size 5x7. 


1857 This was one of the prettiest stations on the old Northern Railway, 
now the Grand Trunk. It stood almost in the woods when it was built in 


1857, and a couple of miles outside the then city limits of Toronto. To-day, 
however, commerce has made sad havoc with the beautiful surroundings 
of nearly sixty years ago, for the station is now (1917) in the city limits, 
on the north side of Davenport road. It faces west, and Station street 
runs north and south behind the building, while to the north is St. Clair 
avenue. Near the station are the works of the Canada Foundry. Water

866 HOME OF DAVID WILLIAMSON An East End landmark of 
Toronto Typical workingman's home of the day. It was situated at the 
north-east corner of South Park (now Eastern avenue) and Trinity street, 
and was occupied by David Williamson, known as "Long Davy," a carter, 
who worked for ,Gooderham & Worts. Williamson was accidentally killed 
many years ago at the Pape avenue crossing of the G.T.R. The old dwelling 
was torn down in 1880. Sketch in water color by J. O. Fowler, 1871.

after leaving Niagara, and here also the future Sir Allan spent the greater 
part of his early days. Water color. Size 5x8. 

868 MEAD'S HOTEL, TORONTO ISLAND, 1882 About 1850 Reuben 
Parkinson, a carriage builder, built a hotel at Maskelonge Point (Mugg's 
Landing), Toronto Island, moving it some three years later to the west 
side of the Privat Hotel grounds. This hotel was washed away, and about 
1859 Mrs. Parkinson erected a hostelry on what is now part of Island 
Park. In 1873 Mrs. Parkinson assigned her lease to Robert Mead, and on 
the latter's death the business was carried on by his widow. In 1887 the 
city purchased Mrs. Mead's holdings, consisting of twelve acres, and incor- 
porated them in the park. The wharf shown ran in a northwesterly direc- 
tion, into the bay, a distance of 283 feet, the end being opposite the ex- 
tremity of the present (1917) Island ferry. Water color by W. J. Thomson.

870 RITCHEY TERRACE, TORONTO North side of Adelaide, near 
York street. In 1856 John Ritchey erected the six fine white brick houses 
known as Ritchey Terrace, adjoining his own residence. Some years ago 
the dwellings wee remodelled and are now (1917) used as factories and 
warehouses, Nos. 112-22. The walls, ceilings, roof joists, doors and stair- 
ways have stood the test of time so well that they will bear the weight of 
machinery as present-day residences will not do. Only one of the houses 
has been torn down, its site being occupied by the factory of Douglas 
Brothers, No. 124 Adelaide street. John Ritchey was the builder who 
erected the spire of the first St. Paul's church, Bloor street, and the original 
row of brick buildings on the east side of Bay, between Melinda and 
Wellington streets. Pen drawing, colored. Size 5x7.

872 BROCKTON POST OFFICE, 1853 It was first known as Denison 
Terrace Office, then as Lippincott, and finally as Brockton. A Mrs. 
Larkin, who kept a small general store, was also postmistress. The old 
building stood on the south side of Dundas street. Toronto, nearly opposite 
the Appii Forum, or Three Taverns, Collard's, Church's and James', but 
it is almost impossible to identify the exact site now as the entire locality 
has changed. It was probably about the present (1917) Nos. 577-583 Dundas 
street. Church's Hotel is still standing, as is also a portion of Collard's.

873 LAMBTON FLOUR MILLS, 1843 At Lambton Mills, on the 
Humber; the second erected in Toronto Township. The original mills, 
which were very primitive, being almost entirely of wood with an under- 
shot wheel, were the property of Thomas Cooper, who at one time owned 
a wharf in Toronto. In 1843 they were purchased by Mr. (Sir) William 
Pearce Rowland, and practically rebuilt by him. Ten years afterwards Mr. 
Peleg Rowland entered the business, which was conducted under the firm 
name of P. & W. P. Rowland. Two years later Mr. F. A. Rowland purchased 
Sir W. P. Rowland's interest, and the firm name became P. & F. A. Rowland. 
The senior member died in 1882 and the mills were continued by Mr. F. A. 
Rowland until his death in 1885. The first purchaser and Thomas Elliott 
succeeded to the business the following year, the firm being then known 
as Rowland and Elliott. In 1895 Mr. Elliott purchased his partner's interest, 
but kept the old firm name. The property was sold in 1909 to Mr. Home 
Smith, and the next year~ the business passed into the hands of Mr. H. 
Phillips. The old mill had been converted by Mr. Home Smith into a. 
restaurant, patronized principally by Toronto motorists. It was burnt down 
in 1916. Pen drawing, colored. Size 4x6. 


the apartment, originally the dining-room of Hon. William Allan's resi- 
dence, Moss Park, Sherbourne street, was used as an ornithological 
museum. The flags shown in the picture belonged to the Third Regiment, 
East York Militia, and were carried by that regiment in the War of 1812.

Denison was the eldest son of Lieut.-Col. George T. Denison (1st) of 
"Bellevue," Toronto. Water color. Size 5x7. 

876 FIRST BREWERY, YORK (TORONTO) South-east corner 

Sherbourne and Duchess streets In 1815 the brewery was erected by one 
Henderson. It consisted, in 1820, of a stone malt house and granary (this, 
the only building remaining, is shown in picture), a range of small frame 
buildings along Duchess street, where the malt was ground in a handmill, 
and a row of arches dug in the bank, finished with masonry and covered 
with earth. These arches, which extended fifty feet along the south side 
of the lot, were used for storing the beer and fermenting tubs. Just south 
of the granary, on Sherbourne street, was the entrance to the brewery yard. 
The property passed through various hands during its long existence. Dr. 
Thos. Stoyell took it over in 1822, but only retained it for two or three 
years. John Doel, prior to the erection of the brewery adjoining his house f 
corner Bay and Adelaide streets, carried on the Sherbourne street business. 
The granary, years later, was used as a storehouse by John Walz & Co., 
brewers. It is (1917) used as an automobile supply shop. Water color.

north-west corner of Front and Brock streets (Spadina avenue) The first 
offices of the railway, in 1853 (then the Ontario, Simcoe & Huron), were 
at 52 Bay street (west side), near Front. In 1864 the company, which had 
become the Northern in 1859, erected the handsome brick building shown 
in picture. It was vacated in 1889, about a ye"ar after -the amalgamation of 
the Northern and North Western with the Grand Trunk, used for a time 
by the Y.M.C.A. for railway men, afterwards becoming the British Welcome 
League. Water color. Size 5x6. 

878 HOME OF HON. DONALD McDONALD A popular Toronto 
residence on the south side of Queen street, west of Spadina avenue. It 
was a roughcast frame building, erected by William Botsford Jarvis in 
1836, and occupied successively by R. G. Turner, W. B. Jarvis and Hon. 
Donald McDonald, a member of the Legislative Council. The last-named 
and his wife were noted for their hospitality, and in the fifties and sixties 
entertained many military men, politicians and other celebrities. After 
Mr. McDonald's death his widow continued to reside in the house for a 
time. On her departure for California from Toronto it was put to various 
uses, and in 1887 was demolished. Water color. Size 4x6. 

879 COOPER RESIDENCE. TORONTO About 1853 Mr. George 
Cooper, a well-known resident of north-west York in the early days, and 
one of the contractors who took down the Island blockhouse in 1818, 
erected a large brick residence, north of Davenport road, on the hill over- 
looking the Davenport Station, on the then Northern, now the northern 
division of the Grand Trunk Railway. In this house, after a long and 
useful career, Mr. Cooper died. Water color. Size 5x7. 


ggOAT THE NUMBER RIVER, 1845 The Lake Shore road is here 
shown just east of the bridge. The building beyond the bridge and on the 
west side of the Humber. was the storehouse of William Gamble, who 
owned the mills on the river, built previous to 1830 by Thomas Fisher. The 
schooners are lying at the entrance to the Humber. The sheds to the left 
are in the rear of Mother McLean's tavern, which stood behind the willow 
tree. Water color from a drawing by J. Gillespie, 1845. Size 4x7. 


Crookshank's lane (Bathurst street) The lane was a semi-private 
thoroughfare, connecting the farm with York. Its southerly portion re- 
ceived the name of Bathurst street, in honor of Earl Bathurst, Secretary 
for the Colonies during George IV.'s reign. Even up to 1860, however, the 
upper part was known as Crookshank's lane. The farm extended from 
Queen street to the north of Davenport road, the present Bathurst street 
running through the eastern half. The house shown in the picture dated 
from before the War of 1812, and was occupied by Mr. George Crookshank 
(Cruickshank) prior to the erection of his Front street residence, and the 
property remained in his hands until 1851. In 1864 the house was moved 
eastward and enlarged. In 1900 it was demolished. Water color. Size 5x7. 

the Government in 1793, as a military storehouse and barracks, and for 
the accommodation of travellers passing to and from Niagara and York, 
through the Mississauga tract of land. It was a one-storey structure, built 
of logs, clap-boarded, and stood about thirty yards from the River Credit. 
It subsequently became a tavern and was conducted as such for many 
years. In 1861 the house was pulled down and rebuilt on a farm about a 
mile and a half north of Port Credit, but was destroyed by fire eighteen 
months later. Pen drawing, colored. Size 4* x 5. 

Landmark Erected in the early forties by W. P. Rowland (knighted May 
24th, 1879). The store, which also served as a post office, was conducted 
under the firm name of Peleg and W. P. Rowland. In 1855 the firm became 
P. and P. A. Rowland, and on the death of these two gentlemen, Sir W. P. 
Howland and Thomas Elliott succeeded to the business in 1886. Some 
years later Elliott bought it, and in 1909 it was purchased by Home 
Smith, who in turn sold out to H. Phillips. The first mill at Lambton was 
just west of this store, and was owned by Robert Cooper. It was built 
some years prior to Rowland's coming. Subsequently the Cooper property 
also passed into the Rowlands' hands. The old store was burned in the 
summer of 1915. Pen drawing, colored. Size 5x6. 

884 LYNDHURST The Widder Residence, Toronto, 1845-65 Me. 
Frederick Widder, a director of the Canada Company, came to Toronto in 
1845 as commissioner of the company, and took up residence at "Lynd- 
hurst." The entrance to this stately mansion was on Wellington place, 
the grounds extending south to Front, west of Brock street. The view 
given is that of the drawing-room, looking west. Mr. and Mrs. Widder 
were widely known for their hospitality, and entertained lavishly here 
until Mr. Widder's resignation from the Canada Company in 1865. The 
building has been for many years, and still (1917) is, the home of Loretto 
Abbey, Wellington street, west of Brock (Spadina) avenue. This part of 
Wellington street was known as Wellington place up to 1910. Pen draw

as Milton Mills Depot. The building, situated on Etobicoke side of tho 
village, on the north side of Dundas street, half way up the hill from the 
Humber River, was originally owned by William Gamble, who gave up 


business in 1856, and was succeeded by Charles Bell and others. It was 
during the occupancy of J. G. Rogers, who conducted the business from 
1888-98, that this picture was taken. Since 1902 the business has been 
carried on by Fitzpatrick & Co. The post office used to be kept in this 
store, and was called Etobicoke. Pen drawing, colored. Size 5x6. 

886 YORK MECHANICS' INSTITUTE North-east corner Church and 
Adelaide streets, York (Toronto). The York Mechanics' Institute, or Society 
for Mutual Improvement in the Arts and Sciences, was established in 1830, 
and was organized on the principle of the Mechanics' Institutes of Edin- 
burgh and London. "The object of this society," the organizers announced, 
"shall be the mutual improvement of mechanics and others who become 
members of the society in arts and sciences by the formation of a library 
of reference and circulation, by the delivery of lectures on scientific and 
mechanical subjects, the establishment of classes for the instruction of 
members in the various branches of study and for conversation on subjects 
embraced by this constitution from which all discussion on political or 
religious matters is to be carefully excluded." The first meetings of the 
Institute were held in the old Masonic Hall, on Colborne street, near 
Church. Later the police building on Court street was used. About 1856, 
however, the Institute removed to the building shown in the picture, which 
is the front part of the present Central Public Library. On the passing of 
the Free Library By-law, January 1st, 1883, the Mechanics' Institute was 
merged with the Public Library. Water color. Size 5x7. 


Rear view from the Bay side, showing also the outbuildings The original 
homestead was built about 1839 and washed away in 1855. The following 
year John Quinn built the present dwelling, which stands 1,500 feet north 
of the old site. The water shown in the foreground has been cleaned and 
dredged, and is now used as a waterway for boats. In the early days if the 
weather was bad and the bay could not be crossed by boats, Ward would 
hitch his horse to a little waggon and drive around the east end of the 
peninsula (now Toronto Island) and by way of Woodbine avenue reach the 
city. William Ward, second son of David Ward, Sr., was born in the first 
homestead and died in Toronto, 24th January, 1912. David Ward, Jr., 
died 18th February, 1912. Water color by J. T. Rolph, Toronto. Size 10 x 12.

Founded by William Weller According to a notice in the Upper Canada 
Gazette of January 14th, 1830, the Weller stages left York and Kingston 
at noon on Mondays and Thursdays, arriving on Wednesdays and Satur- 
days. In 1834 they left the coach office in the east end of the old Coffin 
Block, corner of Front and Market (Wellington) streets, for Cobourg and 
the Carrying Place. A steamboat met the stage to and from Kingston at 
the Carrying Place, which was at a point five miles from Trenton, Ont, 
between the head of the Bay of Quinte and Weller's Bay. The stage ser- 
vice was discontinued in 1856, after the opening of the Grand Trunk Rail- 
way. Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 7x9.

895 CAER HOWELL First house on Queen street avenue Home of 
Chief Justice Powell On 1st May, 1798, park lot No. 12, consisting of 100 
acres, west side of Queen's avenue, bounded on the south by Queen street, 
and on the north by College, was granted to Hon. William Dummer 
Powell. The house in picture is said to have been built in 1810, and occu- 
pied by the Chief Justice until 1820, when he removed to the north-east 
corner of York and Front streets. As early as 1845, Henry Layton kept an 
hotel at Caer Howell, the old Powell home forming a part of it. In later 
years this house was remodelled and eventually rebuilt. The portion of 
the property on which Caer Howell Hotel stood, was sold in June, 1911, by 
a descendant of Henry Layton, and resold the following November. The 
old building, the site of which was north of the present Orde street, was 
demolished in 1915. Pencil and pen drawing by William D. Powell, grand-

896-904 Sheriffs of Home District, Toronto and York, 
1792-1917 The Home District was formerly Nassau, Que., constituted by 
Lord Dorchester's Proclamation of 24th July, 1788. In 1792 the Home Dis- 
trict was organized and described as being between the Bay of Quinte and 
Long Point, Lake Erie. D. W. Smith, in his "Gazetteer of the Province of" 
Upper Canada," 1813, says, with regard to the district, that it "Is now' 


bounded easterly by a line running northward from between Whitby and 
Darlington townships, on the Lake Ontario, to Talbot River, and from 
thence to the Lake Nipissing, westerly by the London district, and on the 
south by the district of Niagara and the Lake Ontario." From time to 
time the union of the various counties was dissolved, Simcoe leaving in 
1843, Ontario in 1853, and Peel in 1867, and independent corporations 
formed, until in 1887 York and Toronto separated, with Mr. Frederick 
Mowat as sheriff of the city. It has been impossible up to the present

of 200 acres between what is now Seaton, Sherbourne, Queen and Bloor 
streets, and sold the west half to his brother, Thomas Gibbs Ridout. The 
old home of the Ridouts was "Sherborne," in Dorset, Eng., hence the 
name of the street that bounded the west side of the park lot "Sherbourne" 
street. In 1827 Sheriff Ridout succeeded Col. Stephen Jarvis as registrar 
of the Home District, retaining the position until his death in 1855. Water

The artist chose a pretty subject when he selected a spot near the ravine 
drive, RoSedale, where a bridge, which crosses Price's Creek, leads the 
pedestrian up the road to Toronto Lacrosse Grounds. The picture shows 
at the left hand corner the site of Price's old mill, and its water wheel, 
just east of where Roxborough street turns east to descend Mather's Hill. 
The creek was called Price's because it ran through the grounds of the late 
Hon. James Hervey Price, north of the Toronto Waterworks Reservoir, 
crossing Yonge street at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, and then finding its 
way through the Rosedale ravine. Water color by J. T. Rolph, Toronto^

a General Hospital was built in York from funds supplied by the Loyal and 
Patriotic Society of Upper Canada. It was a large, two-storey, brick struc- 
ture, situated at the north-west corner of King and John streets. At a 
subsequent date two other buildings, in the rear of the main structure, 
were added for fever patients. After the Houses of Parliament were 
burned in 1824 the Legislature met in the hospital until 1828, and from 
L856-9 it was used as Government offices. It was then unoccupied for 
several years, and in 1862 torn down and replaced by a row of brick 
dwellings. These were converted into the Arlington Hotel, which still 
(1917) stands. Pen drawing. Size 5x7. 


909 BRIGHT HOUSE, TORONTO, 1820-94--The home of a York 
pioneer on Queen street east. The site is now (1917) occupied by Nos. 
696-712 Queen east. For nearly sixty years the old one-storey frame 
dwelling was the home of John Bright, a veteran of the War of 1812, and 
at the time of his death, in 1885, the oldest inhabitant of Toronto. Early 
in life he acquired the plot of land on the north-west corner of Yonge 
street, which he afterwards traded for the lot on which the house shown 
in the picture was built. Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x7. 

910 KNOX, OR TORONTO ACADEMY It was a frame structure at 
the rear of the third home of Knox College, now (1917) the site of the 
Queen's Hotel, Front street west, and was intended as preparatory for 
Knox College. In 1846 the first principal of the academy was appointed in 
the person of the Rev. Alexander Gale, an eminent Presbyterian clergy- 
man, who afterwards kept a school at Logie Farm, Cook's Mills, six miles- 
south-east of Hamilton, for many years. When Knox College was removed 
to Elmsley Villa thelicademy building was moved still further to the rear 
and was used as an outhouse, storeroom and kitchen for the hotel con- 
ducted by Mr. P. Swords. Water color. Size 4x5. 

911 McGILL COTTAGE, TORONTO, 1803-68 At an early date Capt. 
John McGill obtained the park lot just east of Yonge street on part of 
which the Metropolitan Methodist Church and St. Michael's R.C. Cathedral 
now (1917) stand, the former on what was known as McGill Square, which 
was bounded by Church, Queen, Shuter and Bond streets. In this square 
Capt. McGill built the residence shown in picture. For a long period it was 
occupied by' Mr. McCutcheon, who, in accordance with his uncle's (Peter 
McGill) will, assumed the name of McGill. Further north, running east from 
Yonge street, is McGill street, named after the original owner of the pro- 
perty. Capt. John McGill was an officer of the Queen's Rangers, the corps 
commanded by Lieut.-Col. Simcoe. afterwards first Lieut-Governor of 
Upper Canada, and was with that corps during the American Revolutionary 
War. He became Commissioner of Stores for Upper Canada, 1793. In 1805 
he was Inspector-General for Provincial Parliament accounts, and in 1818 
Receiver-General and Auditor-General of Land Patents. Water color.

Below the Riverdale bridge, on the west side of the river, looking south- 
east. The structure received its name from Mr. John Bell, Q.C., of the 
firm of Bell & Crowther, and a director of the Don & Danforth Road Co. 
He was the owner of the property on the west side of Don street, facing 
the river, and was the moving spirit in having the bridge erected. The 
building, with the smoke stack, to the right, was William Parsons' oil 
refinery, No. 9 Don street, now (1917) the site of the Kemp Mfg. Company. 
The houses to the south were on Don street, in the vicinity of the present 
Munro and Hamilton streets. In the immediate foreground is a marsh. 
When Bell's bridge was erected, Gerrard, from Parliament to the Don, was 
known as Don street. Water color by J. Hoch, Toronto. Size 6 x 13. 

Broadview avenue, north of Queen street It was at the time of its de- 
molition, in 1894^ one of the oldest houses in Toronto, and for forty-two 
years the residence of Captain James Sparks, who purchased the unpre- 
tentious, one-and-a-half-storey, low dwelling in 1840, clap-boarding it a few 
years later. There is a tradition which fixes the date of its erection at or 
about the same time as that of Castle Frank, one-time residence of 
Governor Simcoe. Captain Sparks, a Scotsman, emigrated to Canada in 
1818, and at an early age began work as a sailor on Lake Ontario, continu- 
ing that calling until his retirement. In his day he commanded many lake 
schooners, his last being the "Beaver," which was wrecked at Rochester 


about 1865. For many years during the winter months, especially from 
1822-50 Capt. Sparks acted as tyler for the Masonic Lodge meeting in the 
Market Lane Hall. Water color. Size 5x6. 

914 OLD PEACOCK TAVERN, TORONTO It was a popular stopping-

91 6 _ PR IVAT'S HOTEL, TORONTO ISLAND In 1843 Louis Privat 
opened as a hotel the summer residence built on the Island by Lord Syden- 
ham in 1839. A year later he was joined by his brother, Louis Joseph 
Privat, with his family. In connection with the hotel the brothers operated 
the "Peninsula Packet," invariably known simply as "the horse boat," 
and later the "Victoria," with a steam engine of 25 h.p., was built. In 1853 
Louis Privat removed to Durham, Grey County, where he kept a hotel 
until his death in 1860; and toward the end of 1855 his brother migrated 
to Bentinck Township, County Grey. When the brothers left the Island 
they were succeeded by John Quinn; but the site on which their house- 
stood is now covered by the waters of the eastern entrance to Tqronto

R. Phillips, carver, carried on business, and rear of building, on Bay street, 
was used by Wm. Halley as a printers' emporium. These buildings were 
torn down in 1876. others erected, and in turn demolished. The Union 
Bank now (1917) stands on the corner. Water color. Size 5x7. 


corner Bay and Richmond streets. The congregation met first in the 
March or Stanley (Lombard) Street Baptist Chapel, up to 1840. In 1841 
they purchased the Methodise Episcopal Chapel, Richmond street, and in 
1848 the new church at the corner of Bay and Richmond streets was 
erected. Rev. John Jennings, who came to Canada in 1838, was inducted 
pastor, 9th July, 1839. He resigned his pastorate in 1874. The church was 
in the perpendicular English Gothic style of architecture, of white brick 
with cut stone facings, having a square tower at the went end. William 
Thomas was the architect. In 1880 the property was sold to the College 
of Physicians and Surgeons, who installed offices therein. It was demol- 
ished in 1886 to make room for a new building, which was occupied by the 
College of Physicians and Surgeons, and also as an office building. In 1907 
it passed into the hands of the Continental Life Co., some storeys were 
added, and the structure became a prominent office building. Water color

920 MASH QUOTE H (FIRST) HOUSE, TORONTO This residence, 
built by William Augustus Baldwin in 1851, stood on what is now (1917) 
Avenue road, just south of Heath street. The building, demolished in 
1890, was of hewn timber, from the Baldwin estate, filled in with brick and 
roughcast. An elm tree, which stands in front of the site of the house, had 
a chain attached to a staple driven into the tree, to which horses were 
tethered. The chain was about a foot long when placed there about fifty 
years ago. To-day the tree has grown round all the links save one, which 
may still be seen by passers-by. "Mashquoteh" means in the original 
Indian, "a meadow," or "a clearing in the forest." Water color. Size 4x6.

Russell Hill. Water color. Size 5x6. 

922 OLD NATIONAL CLUB, TORONTO On the west side of Bay 
street, south of King. The club was originally organized, and headquarters 
established, to give the "Canada First" party a local "habitation." In July, 
1874, the charter was issued, the club rooms being opened the following 
March, with Prof. Goldwin Smith as first president. Membership increased 
to such an extent that new club rooms became necessary, and the Robinson 
House property, on the east side of Bay street, north of King, was pur- 
chased. The present building was erected there, the club formally taking 
possession on December 17th, 1907. Water color. Size 5 x 7. 

923 WRECK OF THE "MONARCH" The disaster occurred off Toronto 
Island about five o'clock in the morning of Saturday, November 29th, 1856. 
A heavy storm had arisen, and, in the darkness, Captain Sinclair, misjudg- 
ing his position, turned the vessel towards the city. Discovering his mis- 
take, he endeavored to turn out towards the lake again, but a heavy sea 
drove the freighter on to the shelving clay in rear of Privat's Hotel, not 
more than fifteen yards from the beach, and she stuck fast. Her deck load 
was completely washed off, the hold filled with water, and it was with ' 
difficulty that the crew got ashore. On the Tuesday and Wednesday fol- 
lowing a violent storm broke the "Monarch's" hull in three places and all 
hope of saving her was abandoned. A part of her machinery was re- 
moved, but the cargo was almost a total loss. In 1862 Captain Hugh 
Richardson, then Harbor Master, reported that the breach in the late 
peninsula was about half a mile wide, and that the old line of the beach 
had moved so far that the boiler of the wrecked "Monarch," once high and 
dry on the beach, was then in deep water about one hundred yards out in 
the lake. The "Monarch" was a new freight and passenger steamer, plying 
between Montreal and Hamilton, stopping at Toronto. With key. Water

hearty hospitality and sumptuous entertainments. On one occasion Mr. 
Proudfoot presided over quite an extensive fancy fair, which was held in 
the drawing-room, a magnificent apartment, seventy-five feet in length by 
twenty-five feet wide. In 1862 Mr. Robert Cassels acquired the property, 
disposing of it in 1869 to Mr. Donald Mackay, who renamed the house 
"Dundonald." During the latter's occupancy the members of the General 
Assembly of the Church of Scotland in Canada were entertained there. In 
June, 1904, on the opening ofTine street now known as Dundonald, the 
dwelling was demolished. Water color. Size 5x7. 



some years after Miss Russell's death (sister of Hon. Peter Russell) her 
home on Palace (Front) street was occupied by Hon. and Right Rev. 
Alexander Macdonell, first Roman Catholic Bishop of Upper Canada. On 
his return from Europe in 1826 the brick dwelling on the south-east corner 
of Jarvis and Duchess streets became his residence. His private chapel, 
once renowned as the "soup kitchen," was a large frame building nearly 
opposite. The old house, which faces on Jarvis street, is still (1917) 
standing. Water color. Size 5x7. 

926 ST. PAUL'S HALL The old Town Hall of Yorkville On the 
west side of Yonge street, north of Bloor; erected 1859-60 by William Hay, 
architect, and William McGinnis, contractor. Until February, 1883, the 
municipal offices and Council Chamber were in use as such, but at that 
date Yorkville was incorporated with Toronto, being designated as St. 
Paul's Ward. From 1884 until 1907, when the new library building on 
Yorkville avenue was completed, the Council room was used as a public 
library. The clock in the tower was installed in 1889. Now (1917) the

after his arrival, about two acres on the south-east corner of King and 
Yonge streets, extending from King to Colborne, and from Yonge to the 
site of the King Edward Hotel. On part of this property, the present site 
of the hotel, his residence and wagon shop were located. Both 
buildings were of frame. Mr. Bostwick in his business did for the 
farmers of Upper Canada what in later years the Speight Co., of Markham, 
and the Bain Wagon Co., of Woodstock, did for the farmers of their day in 
Ontario. Water color by F. V. Poole. Size 5x7.

the eastern boundary of the farm of Aikinshaw. Water color. Size 5x7. 

929 OLD BLUE SCHOOL, YORK (TORONTO) Centre "Block D," 
built 1816. In April, 1807, after the passing of "An Act to establish Public 
Schools in each and every district of this Province," the Home District 
school was opened in York, at s.e. corner George and King streets. In 1813 
it was removed to a barn, corner King and Yonge streets, Dr. Strachan 
taking charge. A new building became necessary, and in 1816 the school 
was removed to the centre of College Square, north of present St. James' 
Cathedral. It was painted a bluish color, and for this reason was known 
as the Old Blue School, afterwards the Toronto Grammar School. In 1829 
the building was removed to the s.e. corner of New (Jarvis) and March 
(Lombard) streets, and used by Upper Canada College until 1831. The 
Grammar School was closed for some years and re-opened in 1834 in the 
old building. In January, 1864, it was held on the east side of Dalhousie 
street, just north of Gould, and in 1870 in old King's College, Queen's Park.

Jenny Lind visited Toronto in 1851, she gave a concert in St. Lawrence 
Hall, the proceeds of which were to be devoted to some charity com- 
memorative of the event. After some deliberation it was decided to found 
the Protestant Orphans' Home, and in 1854 a permanent site on Sullivan 
street was presented by Hon. Robert Baldwin and Hon. William Cayley, 
and a building erected. Rev. Stephen Lett, rector of St. George's Anglican 
church, and Dr. Rees, at one time Superintendent of the Hospital for the

here for the Grand Trunk Railway, but in 1869, when steel rails were being 
imported from England, the company concluded that they could not com- 
pete, and, rather than make the changes in the plant necessary for the 
production of steel rails, the place was dismantled. The Rolling Mills 
wharf stood on the south side of the present (1917) Esplanade at the foot 
of the then East street, bordering on the north bank of the Don River 
(previous to its deviation by the Corporation). The property is now occu-

1069 to 1076 Magnetical and Meteorological Observatory, University 
Grounds, Toronto, 1840-1917 In 1839 magnetical observatories were estabv 
lished by the Imperial Government at St. Helena, Cape Town and Toronto. 
As superintendent of the observatory at Toronto, Lieut. C. J. B. Riddell 
was chosen. The Council of the University of King's College (Toronto 
University) offered the Government a grant of Two and a half acres of 
ground, on condition that the buildings erected should be used for no other 
purpose than that of an observatory, and revert to the college when the 
observatory should be discontinued. The sanction of the Governor-General 
was received in 1840, and the building, erected under the direction of Lieut. 
Riddell, was completed in September of that year. 

It was built of twelve-inch logs, roughcast on the outside and plastered on 
the inside, the laths being attached to battens projecting two inches from 
the logs so as to leave a stratum of air between the logs and plaster. No 
iron was used, the nails being copper and locks of brass. The establish- 
ment consisted of: 1, Observatory; 2, The anemometer house; 3, De- 
tached building for experimental determination; 4, Small shed, behind 
fence, for inclination circle; 5, Barracks for officers. The latter build- 
ing stands (1917) west of the Physics building, University crescent, and 
was used as a printing office by the University. Water color. Size 5x7.

Weather or meteorological office. These were both removed to make room 
for the Physics building and Convocation Hall. 3, Self-recording magnetic 
instruments. 4, Stone Transit building, covering the pillar standing near 
present (1917) Physics building. The dome to main building was added in 
1882. Water color. Size 5x7. 

It stands at the east end of the main building of the University; was 
constructed with the same stone and restored to its original elevation 
nearly as possible. The tower* however, in the reconstruction was placed at 
the south instead of the north end of the Observatory of 1855, otherwise al 
the old building, except the wooden addition, which contained the instru- 


ments, is in the present structure, and is now (1917) the astronomical 
observatory in connection with the University. Photograph, colored. Size

at the Credit by lottery, and, with the money obtained, to erect a large 
cotton factory. This idea was abandoned, however, and Mr. Capreol turned 
his attention to the construction of a canal between Lakes Huron and 
Ontario. Ground was broken for the canal, Sept. 17th, 1866, but the 
project was never carried to completion. Mr. Capreol died in Toronto.

1118 THE "GREAT EASTERN" IN CANADA, 1861 An excursion to 

Quebec When the "Great Eastern" steamship was at Quebec in the sum- 
mer of 1861, excursions by rail and water were held from all parts of Can- 
ada to the ancient city. The late Capt. Charles Perry, of Toronto, was in 
command of the "Bowmanville," which carried an excursion party of some 
hundreds to Quebec. At the conclusion of the trip the passengers presented 
the captain with a handsome solid silver cup and salver, inscribed as 
follows- "Presented to Captn. Chas. Perry, of the steamer 'Bowmanville' 
by the passengers on the excursion trip to visit the 'Great Eastern,' as a 
token of acknowledgment for his kindness and attention, July, 1861." This 
once-famed steamship was launched in 1858. She was 679 feet long, 83 
feet broad, 48 feet depe and 18,915 tons. Commercially she was never a 
success and underwent sales periodically, the last time being purchased by 
a firm of ship breakers and broken up at New Ferry, on the banks of the 
Mersey, in 1890. Photograph, colored, of the testimonials, which are in

School, a popular .ladies' seminary, 1853-66 Situated on Grange road, just 
east of "The Grange," stood for many years a commodious building known 
as "Pinehurst." It was originally the residence of Mr. Clarke Gamble, who 


built it in 1840. In 1850 he rented it to M. and Mme. Des Landes as a 
ladies' school. Three years later they were succeeded by Mrs. Forster, an 
accomplished schoolmistress and charming woman. She had been the wife 
of an English army officer. From 1853-66 the school continued as a 
fashionable seminary, the daughters of many prominent Canadians having 
been educated there. On the retirement of Mrs. Forster in 1866, the 
Bishop Strachan School for Girls occupied "Pinehurst," for a year. The 
building was pulled down in the eighties to make way for the extension of 
McCaul street to College street. The picture, with key, shows a number of 
the pupils with Mrs. Forster and some of the teachers, in the summer of 
1864. Photograph, colored. Size 9 x 12. See 1125.

cers of the Canadian volunteers for service in India. Baron de Rottenburg, 
son of Gen. de Rottenburg, Administrator of Upper Canada, and Alexander 
Roberts Dunn, of Toronto, son of Receiver-General Dunn, were appointed 
lieutenant-colonel and major, respectively. Recruiting began in April, 
1858, and at the end of May the regiment was quartered in the citadel of 
Quebec, preparatory to embarkation for England. While they were sta- 
tioned at Shorncliffe, Eng., the Mutiny ended and the Royal Canadians were 
ordered to Gibraltar. As the 100th (Prince Regent's County of Dublin) the 
regiment had done good work on the Niagara frontier, 1812-14, and in 
commemoration of this, H.R.H. presented them, before leaving Shorncliffe, 
with colors inscribed "Niagara." With the 109th, which originally was the 
Hon. East India Company's 3rd Bombay European Infantry, the 100th 
Prince of Wales' Royal Canadians became the Royal Lemster Regiment, 
1st July, 1881. The 100th composed the first battalion and the second 
battalion was made up of the 109th Foot. Chromo lithograpn. Size 11 x 18. 

1128 MUSKOKA CLUB, 1866 With key In 1860 three young Toronto 
men in Orillia, having heard of Muskoka, resolved to investigate, going as 
far as Muskoka Bay. The following summer a party of six set out to 
explore the new land, and for a time camped on the present (1916) site of 
Port Sandfield. For several years an island at the head of Lake Joseph 
was the camping spot. In time a group of islands was purchased by five 
of those who had visited Muskoka Lakes, viz., Prof. Geo. Paxton Young, 
William H. Rowland, Montgomery Cumning, John Campbell, and James 
Bain. The largest island was called Yohocucabah, from the first two letters 
of the surnames, the "h" being added to give an Indian pronunciation. 


Proving rather cumbersome, the name soon became shortened to Yoho. 
Subsequently the islands were purchased by Prof. Campbell, whose 
hospitality was unbounded and is remembered by many who had the 
privilege of being his guests. Two of the five islands were afterwards sold 
by Prof. Campbell to W. B. McMurrich. Photograph, colored- Size 6x6.

of Knox until 1844, when some members of St. Andrew's united with it. In 
1830-1 St. Andrew's was built. The tower and spire were added in 1850, 
and the church demolished in 1877. This church was the predecessor of 
St. Andrew's, corner King and Simcoe streets, and St. Andrew's, corner 
Carlton and Jarvis streets, two congregations having been formed out of 
the original one about 1875. St. Andrew's was the first Presbyterian 
church to introduce instrumental music in its service, not only in Toronto,,

J1150 THE "DISCOVERIE," 1611 Captain Henry Hudson's last ship. 
In the summer of 1610, while searching for the North-west Passage to 
India, Hudson discovered the bay which bears his name. Provisions ran 
short, and his crew, fearing that he would persist in his search until they 
all perished, mutinied in 1611, casting him and -eight others adrift, with 
hardly any arms or provisions, in the shallop towing astern. They were 
never found. This picture is based on details supplied by the replica of

1154 FRENCH FLEET ON LAKE ONTARIO, 1757 With vessels 
beating off the Niagara River At this time Fort Niagara, built 1725-6, was 
in possession of the French. At the left of the fleet is a topsail schooner, 
"La Marquise de Vaudreuil," flagship. Her side shows seven gunports, 
A smaller schooner, "La Huzalt," of similar rig, showing six gunports, 
appears to her right, and a still smaller schooner, with four ports in her 
side and without topsails, is next. She is "La Louise." At the extreme 
right is "Le Victort." She had six guns, three to a side. The craft ranged 
in size from 40 to 70 feet in length on deck. This picture and that of the 
British fleet (No. 1158) are the first known of vessels on Lake Ontario.

1155 SLOOP OF WAR "BON ETTA" She was in the attack on Fort 
Baccurano, near Havana, when, on Aug. 14th, 1762, that fort was captured 
from the Spaniards and nine ships taken by Lord Albemarle. Sir George 
Pocock and Hon. Augustine Keppel, Lieutenant-Colonel John Graves 
Simcoe, of the Queen's Rangers, and subsequently first Lieutenant- 
Governor of Upper Canada, 1792-6, sailed for New York in the "Bonetta" 
after the surrender of Yorktown, Va., by Lord Cornwall! s, Oct. 19th, 1781. 
The vessel carried fourteen guns. Water color on pen drawing by C. H. J.

1156 THE "MATTHEW" OF BRISTOL, ENG., 1497 John Cabot's 
ship on his first voyage of discovery. With his son, Sebastian, and a crew 
of eighteen men, Cabot set sail in the "Matthew" from Bristol, May 2nd, 
1497. On June 24th he sighted Newfoundland, probably at Cape Bonavista, 
thereby establishing a claim to the discovery of the northern half of the 
American continent. Returned to Bristol, August 6th, 1497, and the follow- 
ing year, having interested Henry VII. in his expedition, again set sail 
for the "New Found Land," this time with a fleet of five vessels. Water

1792 The naval service on Lake Ontario in 1792 consisted of the gunboats 
"Beaver" and "Buffalo," the schooners "Onondaga" and "Mississaga," and 
sloop "Caldwell." The gunboats carried one cannon and the schooners six 
guns each, although the latter were pierced for twelve. All of these vessels 
transported troops and provisions from Kingston to York and Niagara, and 
supplies for Fort Erie and Detroit were portaged from the Niagara River 
at Queenston to Fort Chippawa, three miles above the Falls, and then by 
boats and batteaux eighteen miles to Fort Erie, and then to Detroit. Water

1158 BRITISH FLEET ON LAKE ONTARIO, 1757 Showing vessels, 
schooners and brigs of the early days In the foreground are two small, 
unarmed schooners, probably used as tenders. Labroquerie gives them 
one name, the two "Livelies." In the centre of the picture is the "Mont- 
calm," a brig pierced for nine guns on each side. To her right is a 
brigantine or ketch, the "George," showing eight guns to a side. To the 
extreme left is a schooner, the "Lactraguence." Her side shows five gun- 
ports. At the extreme right is a sloop, with four gunports, called the 
"Ontario." In the background is a large sloop of similar rig, but with five 
guns to a side, called the "Vigilant." The high sterns of all the vessels and 
antiquated watersails hanging from the bowsprits of the two brigs mark a 
vanished type of ship. Wash drawing from original in the Royal Library,

1159 THE "DUKE OF GLOUCESTER" British armed vessel on 
Lake Ontario, captured by the Americans at York (Toronto), April 27th, 
1813; taken to Sackett's Harbour as a prize, and refitted for the American 
fleet as the "York." She was twice set on fire, once at York, to prevent 
her falling into the hands of the enemy, and again at Sackett's Harbour, 
May 29th, 1813, when the British attacked that place. She was originally 
armed with six guns, and early in the War of 1812 served as a prison ship. 
When captured by the Americans she was a sheer hulk, stripped of guns 
and spars, and being rebuilt for transport service. The "Prince Regent" 
had been stripped of her guns to fit out the "Brock" and the "Gloucester's" 
armament was "being used to replace them. Her rig has been variously 
described. Commodore Chauncey says she was a schooner, intended for 
sixteen guns, and she is so shown in this picture. Water color on pencil

ber of Sir James Yeo's fleet. She was built at York (Toronto), and 
launched early in July, 1812. The following year she became the "General 
Beresford," and again in 1814 re-named "Netley." Her armament consisted 
of twelve guns, and as one of the vessels in Sir James Lucas Yeo's fleet, 
took part in many of the engagements on Lake Ontario, including the 
attack on Sackett's Harbour, the American camp at Stoney Creek and the 
so-called "Burlington Races." Water color on pencil drawing by C. H. J.

1161 LE "DON DE DIEU" (GIFT OF GOD) The vessel in which 
Samuel de Champlain, with his courageous band of twenty-eight, crossed 
the Atlantic in 1608, ascending the St. Lawrence and founding the City of 
Quebec (Stadacona), July 3rd of that year. The picture is from the repro- 
duction of the original vessel, built for the Champlain Tercentenary at 
Quebec, 1908. Water color on pencil drawing by C. H. J. Snider. Size

1162 THE BARQUE "GRIFFIN" OF LA SALLE Lake Erie's first 
vessel. Built in 1678 by La Salle (the first white man to explore the 
Niagara River), at Cayuga Creek, above the Falls on the American side of 
the Niagara River. She was a high-ended craft of forty-five tons, rigged 
as a galliot or brigantine, with an armament of five small cannon. La 
Salle, accompanied by Father Hennepin, of the Recollets, ascended the 
waterways of the Great Lakes and reached Green Bay, Lake Michigan, in 
her. in 1679, after having encountered many trials and storms. From 
Green Bay she was sent back with a cargo of furs, and was never heard of 
again. On the quarter deck in the picture may be seen Father Hennepin. 
The more common modern mode of spelling the name of the historic vessel 
is "Griffon," but Hennepin spelled it "Griffin," as did Parkman. the his- 
torian. Water color on pencil drawing by C. H. J. Snider. Size 10 x 14. 


1163 "CUTTING-OUT" EXPLOIT, 1814 One of the brilliant events 
of the War of 1812-14 was the British capture of two out of three American 
schooners anchored under the batteries of Fort Erie, in tne Niagara River, 
on the night of August 12th, 1814. Lieuts. Alex. Dobbs, of the "Charwell," 
and Copleston Radcliffe, of the "Netley," had a ship's boat carried all the 
way from Queenston seventeen milesthere being no British vessels at 
the time above the Falls of Niagara. With this gig and some flat boats 
they found, they carried the American vessels by boarding, after a fierce 
conflict, in which Lieut. Radcliffe was slain. A third American vessel, the 
"Porcupine," shown to the left of the picture, escaped in the dark. In the 
foreground is the captured "Somers," and to the right is the "Ohio," also 
captured. Water color on pen drawing by C. H. J. Snider. Size 6 x 20.

"Shannon" and "Tenedos" sailed from Halifax to blockade the Port of 
Boston. The blockade continued until June 1st, when the "Shannon" and 
"Chesapeake" engaged in action, resulting in the capture of the latter. She 
was taken to Halifax and later to England, but in 1820 was sold to a ship 
broker. India proof. Size 12 x 17. See 1169, 1176, 1177. 

1165 BRITISH SCHOONER "NELSON" An innocent accessory of 
the War of 1812. The "Lord Nelson" was built at Niagara in 1811, and 
was owned by Messrs. James and William Crooks. The seizure of her 
was made under the Embargo Act, by the American brig-of-war "Oneida," 
on Lake Ontario, June 5th, 1812, just two weeks before the War of 1812 
was declared, the "Nelson" being a British ship in American waters, off 
Niagara. The seizure was ultimately declared illegal, but, in the mean- 
time, the "Nelson" had been condemned, sold as a prize, and, after being 
fitted as an American war schooner, renamed the "Scourge." She foun- 
dered in a squall off Niagara, August 8th, 1813. The award of $5,000, made 
to her owners in 1817 for her illegal seizure, was never paid, a clerk ab- 
sconding with the funds. One hundred and one years after the seizure 
the claim of the heirs of the owners for damages came up at the Arbitra- 
tion Court, at Washington, and they were awarded $33,000. The picture, 
drawn from a careful study of the records of the vessel, both as the "Lord 
Nelson" and the "Scourge," shows the schooner at the moment of her 
capture by the "Oneida." Water color on pen drawing by C. H. J. Snider.

m Jefferson County, N.Y., directly over against Kingston, was, during the 
War of 1812-14, to the Americans the most vital point on Lake Ontario, as 


Kingston was to the British. In May, 1813, the British forces, accompanied

1170 BROKE, SIR PHILIP BOWES VERE, 1776-1841 Commander 
H.M.S. "Shannon" Sir Philip, who eventually became a British rear- 
admiral, was educated at the Royal Naval Academy, Portsmouth, Eng. In 
August, 1811, after a five years' cruise in the Arctic, sailed for Halifax 
with his third command, H.M.S. "Shannon." Blockaded the Port of Boston, 
1813, and on June 1st of that year engaged in combat with the American 
frigate "Chesapeake, commanded by Lawrence. After an engagement ex- 
tending over a period of only fifteen minutes, the "Chesapeake" was cap- 
tured by Broke, taken to Halifax, and eventually to England. Sir Philip 
was made a K.C.B. in 1815 and died in 1841. Engraved by W. Greatbatch.

Regiment arrived in Canada, and was immediately sent to the front. On 
4th May, 1814, an expedition under command of Sir Gordon Drummond left 
Kingston, the fleet which formed a part of it arriving before Oswego the 
next day. On the morning of the 6th, part of the land forces and seamen, 
under command of Lieut.-Col. Fischer, of the De Wattevilles, embarked in 
boats. The "Montreal" and "Niagara," shown in the picture, cannonaded 
the battery, a landing was effected, and the fort, which the Americana 
abandoned, occupied by the British. Lieut. Hewett, of the Royal Marines, 
by whom the picture was drawn, climbed up the flagstaff, under fire of 
the retreating force, and tore down the colors, which had been nailed to it.

1174 ATTACK ON FORT -ONTARIO (OSWEGO), 1814 The attack 
on Fort Ontario, the fortification built on the north side of the River 
Oswegatchie for the protection of the village of Oswego, was one of the 
minor affairs of the War of 1812-15. The fort was on a bluff overlooking 
the village, and was partly built on colonial lines, spacious, but not strong. 
The attack was made on 6th May. The British fleet was under the com- 
mand of Sir James Yeo with a force of 1,200. They landed near where the 
City Hospital now (1917) stands, and the battle took place in rear of it. 
The British ascended the long, steep hill, and by their attack compelled 
the Americans to evacuate. Mitchell, the American commander, retreated 
up the river. Water color from old print. Size 4x7. See 1168, 1171, 1175.

5TH, 1814 The two .vessels are shown beating up for Michillimackinac, 
after their capture by Lieut. Miller Worsley. Originally the U.S. schooners 
"Scorpion" and "Tigress." They destroyed Lieut. Worsley's schooner, the 
"Nancy," in the Nottawasaga River, Aug. 14th, 1814. Worsley, escaping, 
secured boats at Fort Michillimackinac, boarded the "Tigress" as she lay 
at anchor in the Detour Passage in the night of Sept. 3rd, and captured 
her after a gallant struggle. At dawn on Sept. 6th he sailed up to her con- 
sort, the "Scorpion," and carried her by boarding, her crew being entirely 
ignorant of the fate which had befallen their comrades. Both vessels had 
been in the Battle of Put-in-Bay, Lake Erie, the year before, where the 
"Scorpion" fired the first and last gun in the contest. They formed part 
of the American expedition against Michillimackinac in 1814, when they 
destroyed the schooner "Perseverance," captured the "Mink," and block- 
aded and burned the "Nancy." The schooners wefre left to blockade the 
Nottawasaga River, so that no supplies might reach the British garrison 
at Michillimackinac. Worsley renamed the pair "Surprise" and "Confi- 
ance," carried their crews prisoners in them to the Nottawasaga, and sailed 
back to Michillimackinac. The vessels became the nucleus of a new British 
navy for the Upper Lakes. The pen drawing by Mr. C. H. J. Snider, in 
which the "Confiance" is to the left and the "Surprise" to the right, is 


based upon the details shown in a naval officer's painting of Penetangui- 
shene, about 1819, a water color found in London by the late James Bain 
when head of the Toronto Public Library; descriptions of both vessels 
given by Lieut. Worsley in his despatches; and careful examination and

Harbor. Size 9 x 10. 

H79_ENTRANCE TO WELLAND CANAL View at Port Colborne, 
1880 On 30th Nov., 1829, the first Welland Canal, which then was only 
built to Port Robinson and thence via Chippawa, was formally opened. In 
1842 the shareholders were bought out by the Government, which assumed 
entire control. The channel was enlarged and a new waterway made from 
Welland Junction to Port Colborne, the latter place being bisected by the 
canal, which formed the first direct all-canal connection between Lakes 
Erie and Ontario. To the left of picture, in background, is the old G.T.R.

Chauncey in pursuit of the British, Nov. 9th, 1812 The British sloop of war, 
"Royal George," was pursued into Kingston harbor by Chauncey in the 
American brig "Oneida" and several schooners. These used sweeps and 
fired repeatedly on the British ship at long range, finally coming into close 
action, when she anchored under the shelter of the batteries. In the even- 
Ing the Americans, who had kept up the bombardment for hours, were 
forced to withdraw to Four-Mile Point, opposite Kingston. Water color on

1183 HIS MAJESTY'S BRIG "MAGNET" Originally the schooner 
"Sir Sydney Smith," armed with twelve guns, but in 1814 altered to a brig, 
given fourteen guns and re-named the "Magnet." As one of Sir James 
Yeo's squadron, she took part in most of the naval engagements of the 
War of 1812-14. Was at the storming of Oswego, May 6th, 1814. In the 
August of that year ran ashore at Ten-Mile Creek, west of Niagara, and 
was burned to avoid capture by the Americans. Water color on pencil

second unlucky British ship of that name. Built at Maiden, near Amherst- 
burg, N.C., and named in honor of Brock's victory at Detroit. In order to 
supply her with guns Barclay dismantled Fort Maiden and gathered up the 
field guns and battery artillery which had been used at the attack in Fort 
Meigs, mustering in all nineteen cannon, of six different calibres. Some 
pieces of the armament could only be discharged by flashing pistols at 
their touch-holes. The "Detroit" was in the disastrous Battle of Lake 
Erie, Sept. 10th, 1813, and was afterwards dismantled by her American 
captors and sent over the Falls of Niagara. Water color on pencil draw/-

LAKE ONTARIO, 1814 The "St. Lawrence" was the largest warship ever 
floated on the Great Lakes. Built at Kingston and launched in September, 
1814. She was alone more powerful than the combined American fleet, and 
Commodore Chauncey withdrew his vessels to Sackett's Harbour and began 
building a ship to match her. Ere this vessel was launched peace was 
declared. The "St. Lawrence," manned by 1,000 men, carried 102 guns, 
arranged in two tiers. Her main dimensions were, approximately, 190 
feet length of keel, 60 feet beam, and 23 feet draught. She made two 
voyages to Niagara with troops and stores in the autumn of 1814, and after 
peace was declared, was used as a floating barracks at Kingston, but was 
eventually sunk in Kingston Harbor. To the left of the picture is shown 
one of the lugger-rigged gunboats, stationed at Kingston in 1814, the 
"Buffalo," and to the right, the tender-schooner "Vincent." Water color

second flagship in the famous Battle of Put-in-Bay, Sept. 10th, 1813. After 
the peace of 1815 she was dismantled, and in 1825 sunk at her moorings at 
Erie, Pa. In March, 1913, she was raised, completely refitted, and taken 
on a triumphal tour of the Great Lakes during the summer of 1913. The 
picture, drawn on the spot, shows her at anchor in the very anchorage 
where she "put in" among the Bass Islands, a hundred years before, after 
the great Battle of Lake Erie, usually called the Battle of Put-in-Bay. Water

1189 "COLONEL MYERS" This vessel, a British schooner-rigged 
gunboat, was used in the spring of 1813 at the siege of Fort Meigs, built 
by General Harrison at the foot of the rapids some twelve miles from the 


mouth of the Maumee. The British, under Proctor, abandoned the siege, 
however, and in the autumn of 1813 the Myers was burned and sunk in the 
Thames, near Chatham, to avoid capture. In the summer of 1900 it was 
accidentally found, the presence of cannon balls determining the nature 
of its timbers, and the sunken hull raised the following year, through the

mained high and dry in Tecumseh Park until 1912, when the old warrior

TARIO, 1816 The "Beckwith" was launched from Kingston Navy Yard, 
July 8th, 1816, and was used for carrying troops and military stores. These 
were transferred from the ship to the shore in flat-bottomed boats called 
batteaux. Both the ship and the boats are drawn from their original 
designer's lines. Water color on pen drawing by C. H. J. Snider. Size 10 x 13. 


While endeavoring to make Kingston in a strong breeze, Capt. James 
Richardson (father of the Capt. Jas. Richardson who commanded the 
"Moira," and afterwards served in the Rebellion of 1837), in command of 
the British Government schooner "Governor Simcoe," when intercepted by 
the American fleet, Nov. 10th, 1812, drove his vessel over Seven-Acre 
Shoal at the entrance to the harbor. The Americans were unable to cross 
the shallows, but just as the "Simcoe" had cleared the reef and was gaining 
the deep water inside, the foe fired a broadside which passed through the 
"Simcoe's" starboard quarter and came out under her bows. She sank 
with colors flying, settling in four fathoms of water. Boats from the 
garrison rescued the crew. The "Governor Simcoe," the first vessel built 
for trade on Lake Ontario, was subsequently raised and for many years 
sailed the Great Lakes. Water color on pen drawing by C. H. J.

BRITISH NAVY FROM 1768-86 The only set of these drawings known 
was bequeathed in May, 1913, to the Trustees of Greenwich Hospital, under 
the will of the late Henry Cooper Henderson, of Ramsgate. They were, by 
special permission of the Secretary of the Navy, copied for J. Ross Robert- 
son, in September, 1913, by an artist whose specialty is British naval and 
military uniforms. The .drawings are of interest on this continent, show- 
ing as they do the uniform worn by officers of the fleet under such men 
as Howe, Boscawen, Saunders, Byron, Parker, Rodney and others. Water

Ohio, Sept. 10th, 1813 In this battle, between Commander Perry's Ameri- 
can fleet of nine vessels and six British vessels, under Commander Robert 
H. Barclay, R.N., "the superiority of the Americans in long gun metal," 
says Theodore Roosevelt, "was as 3 is to 2, and in carronade metal 
greater than 2 is to 1." Barclay had but 55 man-o'-warsmen in his fleet; 
nevertheless he fought with such desperate valor that Capt. Perry was 
beaten out of his flagship, the "Lawrence." Perry won the day by bring- 
ing up a fresh flagship, the "Niagara." The entire British fleet, helpless 
through lack of sailors, was captured. The picture shows the "Niagara" 
coming into action. Water color on pen drawing by C. H. J. Snider.

off Presqu' Isle, Lake Ontario, Oct. 8th, 1804. The "Speedy" left York 
(Toronto) on Sunday, Oct. 7th, bound for Presqu' Isle, with distinguished 
passengers including Mr. Justice Cochrane, Solicitor-General Gray, High 
Constable Fisk, Angus Macdonald, member of the House of Assembly; 
George Cowan, Indian interpreter, and a Chippewa Indian who was to be 
tried for murder at Presqu' Isle. She was sighted off that port the follow-

Lieutenant Miller Worsley, 1814 She was built in 1789 by Forsyth Rich- 
ardson & Co., at Detroit, for a Montreal trading firm, and later taken over 
for service in the War of 1812-14. After their repulse at Michillimackinac 
the Americans chased the vessel into the Nottawasaga River, and there 
destroyed her, August 14th, 1814. Lieutenant Worsley, however, captured 
within twenty days the "Tigress" and "Scorpion" (afterwards the British 
vessels "Surprise" and "Confiance"), which had destroyed the "Nancy," 
and sent them back to the mouth of the Nottawasaga, with their original 
crews in their holds as prisoners of war. The prisoners were then trans- 
ported to Quebec. Water color on pen drawing by C. H. J. Snider.

1797 he applied to the British Government to found a Rovalist settlement 
in Canada, having previously failed in his efforts in the Rovalist cause in 
France, and generallv blamed for the disastrous result of the Quiberon 
expedition. He and his nartv arrived in Canada in the autumn of 1798; 
a settlement was founded on Yonge street, near Markham, and the follow- 
ing year the Count settled at Niagara, where he lived for some years. He

1216 ROBINSON, JOEL R., 1809-63 One of the best-known men on 
the Niagara River He was born in Boston, Mass., and about 1847 came to 
Niagara Falls, N.Y. By trade he was an expert machinist and engineer, 
and held that position on both the first and second "Maid of the Mist," the 
river ferry boats so well known to tourists. In the summer of 1860 Robin- 
son in a spirit of daring, walked out in the water about 150 feet from the 
shore of Luna Island, at the south end of the American Falls. It was he 
who, in June, 1861, had the courage to run the second "Maid of the Mist" 
through the rapids and the whirlpool to save her from seizure by the 
sheriff at Niagara Falls, N.Y. During his residence at Niagara Falls, 
Robinson made several rescues of persons caught in the upper rapids, who 
otherwise would have perished. He died at Niagara Falls, N.Y., 30th June, 
1863. Water color. Size 3 x 4. Head and shoulders. See 1218. 

1217 FITZG1BBON, COLONEL JAMES A veteran of the War of 
1812-15 At age of seventeen he enlisted in 49th Regiment, and almost 
immediately fought under Brock at Egmont-op-Zee. Appointed sergeant- 
major, 1801; saw service in Canada at Stoney Creek, Fort George, Fort 
Erie and Beaver Dams, and, on the conclusion of the war, settled in this 
country. In 1820 he was appointed one of the Justices of the Peace in the 
Home District; became assistant adjutant-general, 1826, and later adjutant- 
general. Took an active part in the Rebellion of 1837, in Toronto. Col. 
Fitzgibbon was born in Ireland, 1780. Died in London, 1863. Photograph,

1218 DARING ACT AT NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. Joel Robinson, in 
the summer of 1860, walked out into the water about 150 feet from the 
shore of Luna Island, at the south end of the American Falls, and stood 
looking over the edge of the Falls, 100 feet from the brink. He wore felt 
shoes, such as are worn by visitors to the Cave of the Winds, and used a 
wooden staff with a sharp iron point to steady himself. As soon as he was 
photographed he returned to shore. The following summer he took the 
second "Maid of the Mist" through the rapids and whirlpool, landing at 
Queenston. Robinson was born at Boston, and died at Niagara Falls, N.Y.

"Maid of the Mist" was built in 1846, and the second, 1854. In 1861 the 
owners of the latter, who were in financial trouble, determined to run 
down the river in order to avoid seizure by the sheriff of Niagara Falls, 
N.Y. On June 6th, the boat, in command of Captain Joel Robinson, com- 
menced the terrifying journey through the rapids and whirlpool, shortly 
afterwards landing at Queenston, where the Collector of Customs insisted 
on fees for landing and clearing to Lake Ontario. The vessel then sailed 
to Port Dalhousie, where she was placed in dry dock and repaired. Subse- 
quently she was re-named the "Maid of Orleans," and for several years did 
service as a ferry boat between Quebec and the Island of Orleans, on the 
St. Lawrence. The picture shows the "Maid" making her perilous descent 
down the Niagara River. Water color from an old print. Size 4x7. 

1220 FORT GEORGE, U.C. A view from Old Fort Niagara, N.Y., 
1812 Fort George stood on the heights above Navy Hall, at the entrance 
to the Niagara River. It partly commanded Fort Niagara, but was in turn 
commanded by the elevation near Youngstown. As a port of defence, it 
was very effective. On 27th May, 1813, it was attacked by the Americans. 
A close fight ensued, but General Vincent, feeling the Fort could not be 
saved, ordered its destruction. This, however, was not entirely completed 
before the arrival of Colonel Winfield Scott. Although the Battle of Fort 
George may be said to have resulted in a victory for the Americans, yet 
their success was incomplete. Aquatint, printed in color, by Ackermann.

three years in Niagara High School. Since her retirement from profes- 
sional life has devoted herself to historical research work, chiefly in con- 
nection with Niagara. Her "History of Niagara" is the authoritative work 
on all pertaining to the early days of the town, and she has also written 
many pamphlets and articles throwing fresh and important light on its 
history. Miss Carnochan is the president of the Niagara Historical Society, 
and it was through her indefatigable efforts that the 'Niagara Memorial 
Hall, opened to the public in 1907, and containing an invaluable collection 
of manuscripts, books, pamphlets portraits and other relics, was erected. 
Since its opening she has acted as curator of the museum without re-

colonies with his regiment about 1711. Butler's first service was as a 
captain in the Indian Department in the expedition against Crown Point 
under Sir William Johnson, where he greatly distinguished himself. He 
also served under Abercrombie at Ticonderoga, and with Bradstreet at the 


capture of Fort Frontenac. He accompanied Johnson against Fort Niagara 
as second in command of the Indians, and after Gen. Prideaux's death 
followed him in the command. He afterwards served through the revolu- 
tionary war at the head of the famous corps of "Bangers" bearing his 
name. This corps was disbanded June, 1784. Butler, after the war, was 
appointed Deputy Superintendent of the Indians. He was Senior Grand

J. Robins, Bride Court, Fleet Street." The "Caroline" had been engaged 
by the rebels in 1837, to carry men and stores to Navy Island, where Wil- 
liam Lyon Mackenzie's followers were ensconced. Lieutenant Drew (after- 
wards admiral), of the Royal Navy, was ordered by Col. McNab to "cut 
the vessel out," and, accordingly, set out secretly with seven boats, each 
containing four men to row and three or four to be available for the attack. 
The "Caroline" was boarded, fired in four places and set adrift in the 
rapids above the Falls. Drew's undertaking was extremely hazardous and 
its successful completion exceeded McNab's most sanguine hopes. This 
capture opened the eyes of the people of the United States to the real 
sentiment of Canada, which had been represented by the instigators of the 
rebellion as one of seething dissatisfaction towards the existing form of 
government. Lithograph in color. Size 9 x 15. 

1232 KIRBY, WILLIAM, F.R.S.C. Born in Hull, Yorkshire, Eng., ii 
1817, but when a lad emigrated to the United States; educated at the 
Cincinnati Academy. In 1838 young Kirby removed to Canada, and in 1850 
settled at Niagara, having previously lived at St. David's. Became editor 
of the Niagara Mail, and from 1871-95 was Collector of Customs. He was 
one of the first members of the Royal Society of Canada, and an author of 
considerable repute, his chief work "Le Chien d'Or" ("The Golden Dog") 
being considered one of the greatest of Canadian historical novels. Mr. 
Kirby's death occurred at Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., in 1906. Photograph,

Lincoln Militia, becoming lieutenant in 1797 and captain, 1807. Was pres- 
ent at Queenston; taken prisoner in 1813, and detained at Burlington, Ver- 
mont. After the cessation of hostilities, Mr. Crooks settled in West Flam- 
boro', where he operated paper and grist mills. The .paper mill, like that 
on the Don River, claimed the honor of making the first sheet of paper in 


Upper Canada. The race was such a close one that the prize offered by 
the Provincial Government was divided between the two mills. Mr. Crooks 
shipped the first load of flour and wheat from Upper Canada to Montreal. 
He was a member of the Legislative Assembly in 1820, and afterwards a 
Legislative Councillor. His death occurred at West Flamboro', 2nd March,

Schlosser was built in 1760 by a British army colonel of that name, to re- 
place the second Fort Little Niagara, which had been burned by General 
Pouchot, commander of Fort Niagara, in 1759. Fort Schlosser was never 
a strong fort, and nothing whatever now remains of it. A stone chimney, 
however, which stood a short distance away, is still in existence. It was

Americans began preparations for a second attack on Canada. This was 
made in October, and on the 13th the famous Battle of Queenston Heights 
was fought. Colonel Winfield Scott, an able^ officer, and General Brock 
commanding the respective forces. Several attempts by the British to 
storm the heights were unsuccessful, but they eventually, through Sheaffe's 
movement, along what is now the Queenston and Grimsby Stone road, 
gained the summit. The encounter was sharp while it lasted, and soon 
one more victory \vas added to the British list. Gen. Brock was killed dur- 
ing the morning, and his aide, Col. Macdonell, received a wound from which 
he died next day. Water color by E. Wyly Grier. Size 14 x 18.

for miles with their grain. An old account book, bearing date 1779, is 
exceedingly interesting in its curious particulars. The second mill was 
burnt during the bombardment of Niagara, 1813, and a third, built in 1820 
by the late Col. John D. Servos. Some of the timbers, blackened with 
smoke, were used in the present building. Water color by Owen Staples,

Niagara Township This house, probably the oldest in the township, is 
built on an eminence commanding a view of the Four-Mile Creek, now 
Virgil, Ont. The house has been altered, but the principal room, with its

ment store. The Servos family were of Prussian origin. Some of the sons 
were present at the Siege of Niagara, 1759, while grandsons served in 
Butler's Rangers. Four generations of the Servos family have served in 
capacities as ensign, lieutenant, captain and colonel. In 1779, Governor 
Haldimand gave Daniel Servos a commission as lieutenant in Colonel 
Johnson's company of North American Indians, and in 1788 he received 
a commission from Lord Dorchester to be captain of the first regiment of 
militia in the district of Nassau. Mrs. Jarvis, wife of William Jarvis, Pro- 
vincial Secretary, 1792-1817, writes of the Four-Mile Creek: "There is a 
great mill upon it, and the family that it belongs to are Dutch." The house 
is now (1917) occupied by Miss Mary Servos, great-granddaughter of Major 
Daniel Servos. Water color by Owen Staples. Size 22 x 28. See 1271.

1248 DICKSON. HON/WM., NIAGARA Born in Dumfries, Scotland, 
1769; came to Canada, 1792, settling in Niagara, and began the practice of 
law there. He took an active part in the War of 1812, was taken prisoner 
and sent to Greenbush. N.Y., but was subsequently released. In 1816 Mr. 
Dickson founded the Township of Dumfries, Ont., and in that year became 
a member of the Legislative Council of Upper Canada. He lived for a 
time in Gait, but in 1836 returned to Niagara, where he died ten years

Smith, Surveyor-General, Upper Canada, owned what is now (1917) Court 
House Square, or Market Square, Niagara, his house being situated on the 
west side of King street, between Queen and Johnson. In 1798 it was 
offered for sale as a free Grammar School, with four acres as endowment, 
and again in 1800 at a reduced price. Governor Hunter, however, opposed 
the purchase, on the ground that position was too exposed, being opposite 
Fort Niagara. Miss Carnochan, historian of old Niagara, says it is not 
known what became of the house, but its site was occupied in 1812 by the 
Government House, which was burned in 1813. La Rochefoucauld, in his 
"Tour Through Upper Canada," in 1795, states that the dwelling "consists 
of joiners' work, but is constructed, embellished and painted in the best 
style; the yard, garden and court are surrounded with railings, made and 
painted as elegantly as they could be in England." Water color from a 
drawing by Mrs. Simcoe. Size 5x6.

Niagara Township. The village of St. David's is built on lot No. 90 in the 
Township of Niagara, part of which lot is the north-west corner of Main 
street and the Queenston and Grimsby macadamized road, in St. David's.

shows the bridge joining Goat Island on the American side to the Terrapin 
Rock. On the brink of the Falls in 1833 the Terrapin Tower was erected 
by Judge Porter. For many years this tower was a point of interest at 
Niagara Falls, but in 1873 it was blown up by persons unknown, whom, it 
is said, were of opinion it might rival Prospect Point in attraction. Water

1261 WESTERN HOME FOR GIRLS, NIAGARA This building was 
used in 1817 as a jail and Court House, and discontinued as the latter in 
1847, when the present Court House was built. Later, on the removal of 
the jail to St. Catharines, it was unoccupied for several years. Miss Rye 
purchased it in 1869, and the place was a home for orphan children. For 
the past twenty-five years it has been known as the Western Home for 
Girls. Pen drawing, colored, by Owen Staples. Size 11 x 14. 


most surprizing Cataract of Nature is 137 feet high and its breadth about

Peregrine and Lady Maitland, during their stay in Canada, dispensed hos- 
pitality to many members of the English nobility and others of note from 
the Old Land. Stamford Cottage was destroyed by fire many years ago, 
and the grounds adjoining have been turned into a sand pit. Water color.

1269 "NAVY HALL," NIAGARA It is claimed by local historians that 
the building shown in picture was one of a group of three or four buildings 
on the bank of the Niagara River, occupied by Gov. Simcoe and his suite 
from 1792-6. It is asserted, however, by others, that the buildings of the 
Simcoe group were burnt by the Americans in May, 1813. An examination 
of the records and plans of the original Navy Hall buildings fails to show 
any ol : the same dimensions as that in picture, and for that reason doubt 
is expressed as to the date of its erection. A further claim, and one that 
has the support of documentary evidence, is made that the building was 
not erected until 1815-17. Its exact location is shown in a map of 2nd 
May, 1817, signed by Lieut. Willson, R.E., and used in a plan by Lieut.-Col. 
Durnford in 1823, showing the actual elevation of the building, described 
as "the Commissariat Store-house at Navy Hall." In 1862, when the 
terminus of the Southern Railway (now the Michigan Central) was to be 
changed, it was found that the tracks would go partly through the oak 
grove and this old structure and, to save the relic, the Government per- 
mitted the removal of the building to its present location. There is so 
far no documentary evidence in proof of the claim that any of the 
buildings at Navy Hall were used for legislative purposes. Indeed, the 
first meeting was held in Freemasons' Hall, and later meetings, beyond 
doubt, in Butler's Barracks, which had been enlarged to accommodate the 
Legislature. The building in picture, which for some time had been in a 
dilapidated condition, was in 1912 restored by the Dominion Government 
by petition of the Niagara Historical Society. Water color by Owen

1799, she obtaining it from Robert Pilkington. It was also the home of 
Col.' William Glaus (son of Col. Daniel Glaus and Ann Johnson), who 
served as an officer in the 60th Regiment, and was in 1796 Deputy Super- 
intendent of Indian Affairs at Niagara. The house is now occupied by

Glaus. Water color by Owen Staples. Size 20 x 28. 


In 1794 the erection of the first church at Niagara subsequently known 
as St. Andrew's Presbyterian was begun. An old record book of the 
church gives many interesting incidents in connection with its early his- 
tory, of efforts for religious liberty, of encouragement and difficul- 
ties, of generous offerings, and of poverty in the struggle made by the 
handful of people who formed the congregation in its pioneer days. Dur- 
ing the War of 1812-14 the church was burnt, and in 1831 the present struc- 
ture built. Water color by Owen Staples. Size 15 x 21. See 225, 1253. 

Addison, first incumbent of the church, was sent to Canada in 1792 by the 
Society for the Propagation of the Gospel. Before the erection of the 
church the congregation met in the Court House, near the site of the 
present one, Niagara, but in 1805 building was begun, and in August, 1809, 
service was held in the primitive place of worship. In a letter written by 
Mr. Addison in January, 1811, he stated that "The church is now very nearly 
finished, except some seats in the gallery, and the congregation, which is 
large, is well accommodated for public worship." In the winter of 1813, 
however, the church was destroyed by the Americans, only its stone walls 
remaining. The re-building took place between 1816-18, and an addition 
forming the transepts was made in 1843. The Hon. and Rt. Rev. Charles 
James Stewart, Lord Bishop of Quebec, consecrated the church on 3rd 
August, 1828. With its registers dating back to 1792, its tablets and tomb- 
stones, the place teems with the pioneer life, history and military occupa- 
tion of old Niagara. Water color by Owen Staples, Toronto. Size 19 x 25.

emigrated to America about 1660, settling at Massachusetts Bay. Their 
father was Dr. Gideon Tiffany, of Attleboro, Mass. Subsequent to graduat- 
ing from Dartmouth College, N.H., Gideon was associated with his brother 
in the publication of the first newspaper in Upper Canada, the Upper Can- 
ada Gazette, or American Oracle, at Niagara (Newark), 1793, in succession 
to Louis Roy. In 1800 the brothers published "The Canadian Constella- 
tion." The following year, however, Gideon decided to abandon journalism 
for agriculture, and settled in Middlesex County, Ont. Here he operated 
successfully until his death at Delaware, Middlesex County. The late Mr.

tower known as Fort Mississagua, and was wound up by hand, the bell 
ringing until it ran down. It was blown down during a violent storm, 
January 10th, 1889, and never re-erected. In 1904 a foghorn was placed 
near the landing-place at Niagara, and at the same time two lighthouses 
were erected on the wharf. By this means vessels are now guided while

Foot, was formed in England. On the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle, October, 
1748, several corps were disbanded and the title of the regiment changed 
to the 43rd. Sailed for Halifax in 1757; was at Quebec, 1759; took part in 
American Revolutionary War and in Peninsular War. In 1835 embarked 
again for Canada, being stationed in New Brunswick. The famous march 
across the portage of the Madawaska to Quebec took place in 1837, and in 
1839 the 43rd was on the Niagara frontier. The regiment left Canada in 
1846. The picture shows a number of the regiment in one of their winter

BRIDGEWATER STREET, CHIPPAWA, ONT. Erected in 1842, to replace 
the first church which was built in the early part of the nineteenth cen-

church is evidently ancient also, as around the three sides may be seen 
the stumps of rows of great trees which from their weather-worn appear- 
ance, must have been cut down long ago. From the fact that this district

H. Cumniings by his father, James Cummings, who represented Lincoln 
(S. R.) in the United Parliament of Canada in 1844. The younger Cum- 
mings, however, only occupied the residence for a year, and the property 
subsequently passed into the possession of Dr. T. C. Macklem, who resided 
there until 1859. Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x7. 

1297 PETER BALL'S HOUSE,. NIAGARA The dwelling of an old 
pioneer. It was built in 1816, and stood two and a half miles south-west of 
Niagara, on the south side of the Niagara and St. Catharines stone road. 
Peter Ball was a son of Jacob Ball, a captain in Butler's Rangers, who 
settled at Niagara in 1782, bringing with him some forty immigrants. About 
twenty years ago the old house was removed from its original site and 
used as a fruit-packing house. Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x7.

fordThe picture gives the battlefield as it was in July, 1897, and shows 
interesting and historical spots, such as Brock's Monument, Lundy's Lane 
and Old Burial Ground. The battle, fought on 25th July, 1814, was one of 
the most stubbornly contested engagements fought during the war. It 
resulted in a victory for the British. Sometimes it is styled by American 
writers as that of Bridgewater, or Niagara Falls, but Canadians usually 
speak of it as "Lundy's Lane." Water color made on the spot for J. Ross

of Canada; elected in 1844. He resided in the house, which is at the 
north-east end of the village, on Water street, until his death in 1860. The 
property came into possession of James Francis Macklem about 1865, but 
the latter never lived in it. It has been leased since that date. Water

was one of ill-omen for the American forces under Generals Chandler and 
Winder, who lay encamped west of Stoney Creek, with about 3,500 men. 
The British, about 700 strong, under Gen. Vincent and Col. Harvey, attacked 
the Americans, who were surprised and routed. The American generals 
were captured in the action, which lasted an hour and a half. Photograph,

the Niagara River road. The original Hamilton house was erected about 
1789 by the Hon. Robert Hamilton, but on the day of the Battle of Queens- 
ton Heights, Oct. 13th, 1812, was destroyed by fire. Alexander Hamilton, 
a son of the Hon. Robert Hamilton, erected a colonial residence a little 
higher up and further from the river, about seven miles from Niagara. In 
1831 Alexander Hamilton was postmaster of Queenston. Water color by

1824 the printing office of William Lyon Mackenzie. From May 18th to 
November 18th, 1824, the Colonial Advocate was printed there. Mackenzie 
then removed to York (Toronto). From 1848-55 the house was occupied 
by Charles Bradley. In the late thirties Mr. Wynne lived in the small

Niagara and Queenston River road. The Count came to Canada for the 
purpose of founding a Royalist settlement. About 1798 he settled at 
Niagara, building for himself a long, low dwelling, with dormer windows 
and steep, sharply sloping roof, after the style of the Norman French 
houses. Here de Puisaye lived for many years. His closing days were 
spent in England, where he died in 1827. During the War of 1812 his 
chateau, which still (1917) stands, was used as a hospital, as were many 
other Niagara houses of the time. To the left may be seen an old powder 
magazine. Water color. Size 5x7. 


1306 HAMILTON, HON. ROBERT Prominent in mercantile and of- 
ficial life in Niagara District. Shortly after the close of the Revolutionary 
war, Mr. Hamilton removed to Queenstown (Queenston), U.C., from 
Carleton Island, where, in partnership with Richard (Hon.) Cartwright, he 
had carried on an extensive trade with the Indians. He built a brewery, 
wharves and warehouses at Queenston, and soon became prominent in that 
part of Upper Canada. He was a member of the Land Board, and was 
also first judge of the District of Nassau. Under William Jarvis he became 
Deputy Provincial Grand Master of tjie First Provincial Grand Lodge of 
Freemasons, and in 1797 was elected Grand Master in place of Jarvis. For 
some time he distinguished himself in connection with his former partner, 
Mr. Cartwright, by opposing Government measures, thereby incurring 
Governor Simcoe's displeasure. The latter received from Hon. Robert 
Hamilton much valuable information respecting the commerce of the coun- 
try, and particularly the Indian trade. His death took place at Queenston, 
8th March, 1809. Water* color from a miniature in possession of his grand- 
son, Clark Hamilton, Kingston, Ont. Size 3x4. Head and shoulders. 

(QUEENSTON), U. C It was a substantial stone house on the 
Niagara River road, erected by Mr. Hamilton, who settled at Queenston at 
the close of the Revolutionary War. Mrs. Simcoe, wife of the first Lieut.- 
Governor of Upper Canada, during her stay at Niagara, frequently visited 
the Hamilton home, noted for its hospitality. In her diary she writes of it 
as " a very good stone house, the back rooms overlooking on the river. A 
gallery, the length of the house, is a delightful covered walk, both below 
and above, in all weather." Water color, from a drawing by Mrs. Simcoe,

bridge, which crossed the Niagara River between Queenston and Lewiston, 
six miles lower down the river than the first Suspension Bridge, originally 
used by the old Great Western Railway of Canada, was 800 feet long, 20 
feet wide and 200 feet above the water surface. During the January of 
1864 the torrent brought down the floating ice, which wedged and piled 
into a barrier, 60 feet in height, from shore to shore, some distance above 
the bridge. The descending ice wedged the barrier higher and higher until 
on the morning of Feb. 1st the bridge was swept away, as shown in the 
picture, taken a week before the disaster. The bridge was rebuilt in 1899, 
partly from material the gale had left, and partly from that of the dis- 
carded "Upper Bridge." Water color from old print. Size 5x9. See 1342. 

1310 RESIDENCE OF THE FIELD FAMILY This century-old house 
stands on the west side of the Niagara River road, some four miles from 
the Town of Niagara, and was built by Gilbert Field, who died in 1815. 
The structure, which is of brick, originally had a high, sloping roof, but 
this was burned about fifty years ago and replaced by the present (1917) 
lower roof. In the War of 1812 a cannon ball, fired from the American side 
of the Niagara River, penetrated the wall of the house. For some time the 
old homestead was used as a hospital, as were many of the dwellings of 
the day. Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x7.

crossing of the Americans at Queenston He was a militiaman during the 
War of 1812-14, and the son of Sergeant Adam Vrooman, of Butler's 
Rangers. When the original gunners abandoned the battery at Vrooman's 
Point, half a mile from Queenston, on October 13th, 1812, Vrooman took 
command with Lewis Clement and James Durham, and with two twenty- 
four-pounders sank the American rowboats in the Niagara River. The

west side of the Niagara River road, Niagara Township Chiefly through 
the efforts of Mrs. John Hamilton, daughter-in-law of the Hon. Robert 
Hamilton, this pioneer place of worship was erected on property belonging 
to the Hamilton family. It was subsequently used for some years by the 
Methodists, but in 1875 was turned into a residence^by Jarvis Hamilton. In 
1905 it was purchased by Major Shepherd, who had it demolished, and in 
1906, built the house now (1917) standing on the site. Water color by J.

formally opened, June 4th, 1907. It contains over five thousand articles, 
which have been labelled and catalogued. The president of the Niagara 
Historical Society is Miss Janet Carnochan, author of the "History of 
Niagara," who acts as curator and editor from love of the work. The 
society's anniversary is held on September 17th, to celebrate the meeting 
of the first Parliament of Upper Canada at Niagara (then Newark), 1792,

church, south side Queenston and St. Catharines stone road, erected in 1818, 
was the first Anglican place of worship in Queenston. The earliest record 
is of a communion service in 1820, held by Rev. B. B. Stevens, M.A., chap- 
lain of H.M. Forces. The church stood on the slope of the hill, overlooking 
Queenston, below the heights, and west of the W. L. Mackenzie printing 
office. After the demolition of the church the congregation met in the 
Methodist church in 1875. The present St. Saviour's church was erected 
1877-79. Part of the foundation of the old church is still (1916) standing.

Thorold Township. In 1832 the Trustee Board of the Methodist Church 
for the Niagara District, purchased from Hiram Swayze an acre of land, 
and here the frame building shown in the picture was erected. It had a 
gallery at the two sides and north end, until 1868, when being no longer 
required for use, it was shut off by a ceiling. In 1879 repairs were made 
and the church re-dedicated by Rev. Wm. S. Griffin. Since 1890 no regular 
services have been held in the church, which for many years had had large 
congregations. Amongst prominent ministers who preached in the old 
church were Dr. Egerton Ryerson and Rev. Nathan Bangs, who was after- 
wards editor of a Methodist Episcopal journal in New York. Water color

1323 STONE Y CREEK MONUMENT Unveiled by electricity, June 
6th, 1913, by her Majesty Queen Mary from Buckingham Palace, and erected 
by the people of Canada through representations and under the direction 
of the Women's Wentworth Historical Society, to commemorate the Battle 
of Stoney Creek, June 6th, 1813. In 1899 the Women's Wentworth Histori- 
cal Society purchased a portion of the battlefield of Stoney Creek, including 
the site presented to the Government for this monument, and on Oct. 17th 
the ground was declared open as a public park by the Countess of Aber- 
deen. In 1910 the society made an additional purchase; so that in all 17% 
acres of this historic ground have been preserved to the people of Canada. 
On May 26th, 1909, the Countess Grey turned the first sod on the site of 
this monument, and on May 28th, 1910, Lieut.-General Sir John D. P. 
French, K.C.B., K.C-M.G., laid the corner-stone. Photograph, colored.

1324 SECORD, LAURA (INGERSOLL), 1775-1868 Heroine of the 
War of 1812, daughter of Thomas Ingersoll, founder of the town of that 
name, who removed to Canada at the close of the Revolutionary War. 
Her husband, James Secord, of Huguenot descent, was, like her father, a 
U.E. Loyalist. Secord had been severely wounded at Queenston Heights, 
and while home under parole, American soldiers domiciled themselves in 
his house. It was here that hints of the intended night surprise on Beaver 
Dams were dropped. To take this post would be to open up the whole 
peninsula. Lieut. Fitzgibbon, of the 49th, was stationed at the cross roads 
at Beaver Dams, in DeCew's house, and to warn him of the intended attack, 
Laura Secord, on 23rd June, 1813, walked twenty miles by a circuitous 
route from Queenston, through swamp and forest. Her trying experiences 
and Fitzgibbon's success owing to the - timely warning he received, are 
well known in Canadian history. A monument to Mrs. Secord's memory 
has been erected in the cemetery at Lundy's" Lane, and through the inde- 
fatigable efforts of the late Mrs. E. A. Currie, of St. Catharines, a fitting 
memorial was placed on Queenston Heights, June, 1911. Water color from

historic house, situated on the banks of the Niagara River, about two 
miles south of Niagara It was built in 1800, and was one of the largest 
and most comfortable houses in the district. During the War of 1812-14 it 
was used, as were many Niagara houses, for hospital by both British and 
Americans. A battery was built on the bank behind the house, and a

v j ew it was in this house, which is on the north-west corner of Queen 
and Partition streets, lots 92-3, that Mrs. Secord overheard the American 
officers discussing the proposed attack on the British force under Lieut. 
Fitzgibbon at Beaver Dams. To warn the latter Mrs. Secord tramped 
twenty miles through bush and swamp. The result of her warning was 
that Col. Boerstler, the American commander, surrendered, accepting 
Lieut. (Col.) Fitzgibbon's story that, owing to the strength of the British 
force, attack was useless. This was the great event of Fitzgibbon's life. 
The Secord house is still (1917) standing oh its original foundation. The 
exterior has been altered, but the interior the sitting-room and bedroom

CREEK (JORDAN, ONT.) George Ball, youngest son of Jacob Ball, who 
fought in Queen's and Butler's Rangers through the Revolutionary War, 
erected here in 1784, a house and three mills. In 1812 a portion of the 104th 
British Regiment was stationed there to protect the property, with Captains 
Brock (nephew of General Sir Isaac Brock) and Vavasour in command, 
and for many years a verse in red chalk was distinctly visible in the old 
Ball house: 

"The blessing of God attend this house 
For kindness they have shown, 
To the 104th when stationed here 
The country to defend." 

Brock's cocked hat, which came from England after the General's death, 
was presented by Captain Brock to George Ball. It is now in the Niagara

attack the enemy at Beechwoods (or Beaver Dams), and after a short 
engagement to capture Col. Boerstler of the U.S. Army and his entire 
force of 542 men with two field pieces. This monument, erected by the 
Ontario Historical Society from contributions of schools, societies, Her 
Majesty's 49th Regiment, and other militia organizations and private indivi-

BRIDGE, 1850-64 The project of erecting a chain suspension bridge at 
Queenston had been set on foot in 1836; but building was not commenced 
until 1850. On March 19th, 1851, the structure, designed and built by 
Edward W. Serrell, C.E., was opened at Queenston, and a few days later 
at Lewiston. In 1864, for fear of an ice jam, the guys were taken down, 
and not being replaced, a storm wrecked the bridge on Feb. 1st. The 
cables and towers remained intact, but were never used again. The bridge 
was reconstructed in 1899, the material used being partly that which the 
gale had left and partly that of the discarded "Upper Bridge," replaced by 
the present upper steel arch structure. The total length of the cable in 
the first Queenston bridge was 1,245 feet, and the length of roadway 849 
feet. Old engraving, colored. Size 6 x 12. See 1309. 

Here Lieut (Colonel) James Fitzgibbon had his headquarters while at 
Beaver Dams. Laura Secord, wife of Sergeant Secord, having heard that 
the Americans proposed attacking Fitzgibbon, walked from Queenston by 
a circuitous route for about twenty miles, through bush and swamp, to 
De Cew's and notified Fitzgibbon, who was stationed there with a 
detachment of the 49th and a party of Indians. He bluffed Lieut.-Col. 
Boerstler, the American commander, into the belief that the British force 
was so strong it would be useless bloodshed to fight, and demanded sur- 
render. Consequently Boerstler surrendered his force of 519 men and 25 
officers. This stone house, built by Capt. John De Cew, still (1917) stands, 
the same outwardly as a hundred years ago, though the interior has been 
somewhat modernized. Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x6. See 1346. 

1344 BEAVER DAMS BATTLEFIELD Situated about a mile east of 
the present village, close to the Welland Canal The monument stands 
near the Niagara Falls and St. Catharines trolley line steel bridge, over a 
grave which contains the remains of a number of American soldiers who 
fell during the War of 1812-14. The inscription on the stone reads simply 
"Beaver Dams, June 24th, 1813." Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x7.

east side of the present Welland Canal. There are no landmarks to show 
the precise spot of the surrender. Water color. Size 3x5. See 1344. 

the fireplace It was in this house, which is situated on lot 40, about three 
miles west of the present Town of Thorold, Ont, that Lieut. (Colonel) 
James Fitzgibbon, with his band of scouts, had taken up headquarters 
before the memorable skirmish at the Beechwoods, more familiarly known 
as the Battle of Beaver Dams, June 24th, 1813. The old house was erected 
1808-9 by Captain John De Cew, and is now occupied by Mr. Michael J. 
Griffiths. Water color by J. W. Cotton. Size 5x6. See 1343. 

1347 OLD STONE MILL, KINGSTON MILLS, ONT. Site of the first 
Government grist mill in Upper Canada, erected 1782-3 by Robert Clark, a 
well-known U.E. Loyalist. It was situated on the Cataraqui River, five 
miles from Kingston, where the first locks of the Rideau Canal now 
stand. Farmers brought their grist from Cornwall in the east and the 
settlements about the Bay of Quinte. Water color from picture in posses-

cations. It was a loop-holed guardhouse, built 1837, situated on the lake 
shore at the west end of the town, south-west corner Macdonald Park. It 
was built by Contractor Murney, of Belleville, after whom it is named.

This is the first picture of Cataraqui, showing what was left of Fort 
Frontenac in that year. The city of Kingston is situated at the head of 
the St. Lawrence, at the outlet of Lake Ontario. The harbor is an excellent 
one, and ships of any size can be accommodated in perfect safety. In 1671 
the place was known as Cataraqui, and visited by De Courcelles, the 
Governor of New France. He was succeeded by Count Frontenac, and the 
fort was built by him, and named in his honor. The fort was held by the 
French until 1758, when it fell into the hands of the British under Colonel 
Bradstreet. In 1783 a number of Loyalist emigrants under Captain Michael 
Grass settled in what is now the township of Kingston. Water color by

"Oh, much I wish that I were able 
To build a house like Cartwright's stable, 
For it doth cause me great remorse 
To be worse lodged than Cartwright's horse."

soon after the War of 1812 as a defence around the limits of the town. 
These blockhouses were originally connected by a high stockade, and 
Rooney Castle was the last to remain. For many years it was occupied, 
but was abandoned about 1900, and in 1909 was demolished. Water color

was on the Royal Military College grounds in front of the present residence 
of the Commandant. It was torn down to make room for the new building. 
When the forces were removed to England the Admiralty House was aban- 
doned as naval headquarters. The "Cherokee" was built at Kingston in 


1843-4. She was of wood, schooner rigged, 800 tons burden, disarmed about 
1860, and ran for years as a passenger steamer between Halifax and St. 
John. Lithograph. Size 10 x 14.

1367 FALL OF TABLE ROCK On June 25th, 1850, the great over- 
hanging mass known as Table Rock, on the Canadian side of Niagara 
Falls, crashed into the abyss below, leaving only a narrow bench along 
the bank. It fell at noon, when few people were in the vicinity, and no 
lives were lost. The driver of a local omnibus had just taken off his 
horses for their mid-day meal, and was washing his vehicle, when he felt 
a preliminary cracking. He was able to escape, but the omnibus was 
plunged into the gulf beneath. For miles around the sound of crashing 
rock was heard, the ledge being of immense proportions two hundred 
feet long, sixty feet wide, and a hundred feet deep. This was not (the 
first fall of rock here, fragments having broken off previous to 1750 and 
on several subsequent occasions. The name, "Table Rock," still adheres 
to the place. Water color. Size 4x7. 


With a man on his back Blondin, the noted tightrope walker (whose real 
name was Jean Francois Gravelet), was born in Hesden, France, 1824.- On 
August 17th, 1859, he crossed the Niagara River on a rope two inches in 
diameter, just below the railway suspension bridge, carrying his agent, 
Henry Colcord, on his back. Five times in crossing they stopped to rest, 
Mr. Colcord dismounting each time. The perilous trip occupied forty-two 
minutes. Among Blondin's other feats were balancing on a cable, hanging 
from it by his hands and feet, standing on his head, and lowering himself 
to the surface of the water. He also trundled a loaded wheelbarrow across, 
and walked in a sack. In 1860 Blondin gave a special performance in honor 
of the Prince of Wales. His death occurred in 1897. Water color. Size 4x7.

TON, ONT., 1860 In honor of H. R. H. Prince of Wales Because of the 
demonstrations and special preparations made by Orangemen in Kingston 
and Belleville, H.R.H. Prince of Wales (late King Edward), on the advice 
of the Duke of Newcastle, declined to land at these places in September, 
1860. One of the Orange arches erected in Kingston was on Princess street, 
facing southerly and adjacent to King street. The picture shows: 1, The 
News office. 2. Dr. Sullivan's. 3. Arch. 4. McGuire's wharf. 5, The

owned a farm near New York; was a British prisoner of war with the 
French at Fort Frontenac for a time; refused a captaincy in Republican 


service during Revolutionary War. At the close of the war he commanded 
a party of Loyalists, who settled in the Township of Kingston. Water

1372 KINGSTON, C.W., IN 1862 The place was known in 1671 as 
Cataraqui, and visited by De Courcelles, Governor of New France. He was 
succeeded by Frontenac, who built the fort named in his honor, and which 
the French held until 1758. It then fell into the hands of the British under 
Col. Bradstreet. In 1783 a number of Loyalists, under Captain Michael 
Grass, settled in what afterwards became the Township of Kingston, and 
the town plot was laid out in that year. About 1788 Kingston was selected 
by the British Government as a military and naval station. The Legisla- 
ture of the Province of Canada, after the Act of Union, held three sessions 
in Kingston, from 1841-44, when the seat of Government was removed to 
Montreal. The picture shows: 1, Ontario street, in front of City Hall; 2,

state of repair. Water color by Miss E. Fraser, Kingston. Size 7 x 14. 

This engagement is identical with Hoople's Creek, a quarter of a mile west 
of where Dickinson's Landing is to-day (1917). The Americans came from 
Ogdensburg and were met by the Grenville and Dundas militia and by them 
defeated. Hoople's Creek was so called because Hoople got from the 
Government in 1797-8 a grant of land here. Lithograph in color by Coke

site of the old town of Charlotteville, Norfolk County. Turkey Point was 
first settled in 1793, and was visited two years later by Governor Simcoe, 
who reserved near there the town-site of Charlotteville. It is said that the 
Governor purposed founding here the commercial and governmental metro- 
polis of Upper Canada. From 1802-15 the District Courts were held at 
Charlotteville. After the war, however, they were removed to Vittoria, 
and the town relapsed once more into Turkey Point. When hostilities 
broke out in 1812, the Court House was used for barracks purposes, and a 
substantial fort erected, known as Fort Norfolk. The Americans, with 
three schooners, attempted to make a landing here, but were forced to 
retreat up the lake by the four hundred British and colonial troops defend- 
ing the fort. No traces save the trenches now remain of the old-time judi- 
cial metropolis. Water color by W. Edgar Cantelon. Size 6 x 11. 

THE ST. LAWRENCE RIVER, 1860 During the visit of the Prince of 
Wales to Canada he had many enjoyable outings, one of which was that 
of running the rapids. On the 28th of August the Royal party, with Sir 
Edmund Walker Head, Governor-General, the Commander-in-Chief of the 
Forces, and other distinguished Canadians, left Montreal at 11 a.m. by rail 
for Dickinson's Landing, where they embarked on the steamer Kingston 
of the Royal Mail Line and steamed down the rapids of the Long Sault, 
Coteau. Cedars, Cascades and Lachine, arriving at Montreal at 7 p.m. The 
Prince in after life frequently alluded to this trip. Water color from the

Church property. The Jesuit Fathers first landed at Sandwich in 1728, 
when Father Armand de la Richardie became a missionary to the Hurons. 
He labored with zeal and success, and in 1746 built a church and mission 
house. The remaining part of the latter, which stood on the church pro- 
perty on a splendid elevation overlooking the Detroit River, was destroyed 
by fire, 29th June, 1912. A wine cellar was erected on the site, and the 
property is now (1917) owned by Messrs. Gordon Wickett and W. C. 
Kennedy, of Windsor. Water color. Size 4x6.

1386 FORT CARLETON, NEAR KINGSTON, U.C. A fortification of 
pre-conquest days Carleton Island, named after Sir Guy Carleton (Lord 
Dorchester), lies near Grand Island, opposite Kingston, nearest the south 
shore, where Lake Ontario descends into the St. Lawrence. It is not known 
when the first fortifications were erected, but probably by the French as 
the British found the place strongly fortified at the time of the conquest. 
As it commanded the main channel of the St. Lawrence, they greatly 
strengthened it. Sir John Johnson and Col. John Butler, of the "Rangers," 
encamped with the Indians from the Mohawk Valley, on Carleton Island, 
in 1775, when on their way to join the British in Montreal. Long, in his 
"Voyages," published in 1791, says it had an excellent harbor, with strong 
fortifications and well garrisoned. Before the War of 1812 the island was 
guarded by a military detachment from Kingston. After the war, however, 
it formed a part of Cape Vincent Township, Jefferson County, N.Y. The 
moat that surrounded the fort was dug in the rock, and so was the well in 
the north-western portion of the works. North of the fort lay the garrison 
cemetery, and beyond the ramparts an Indian burial ground. The view is 
from the n.n.e. point of the fort. Water "color. Size 3x6. 

TOWN, COUNTY LENNOX, ONTARIO It stands in what is known as 
the U.E. Loyalist Burying Ground, on the farm of Nicholas Hagerman. 
Here on their arrival from the United States in 1784, the Loyalists knelt in 
thanksgiving and celebrated their first communion on top of an over- 
turned canoe. On 16th June, 1884, to commemorate the centennial celebra- 
tion of the landing of the Loyalists, the corner-stone of the monument was 
laid with Masonic honors. Patriotic addresses were delivered, one of 
which was given by L. L. Bogart, then over eighty years of age, and the 
oldest living male representative of the U.E.L. band. The inscription on 
the monument reads: "In memory of the U.E. Loyalists, who, through 
loyalty to British institutions, left the United States and landed on these 
shores on the 16th. of June, A.D. 1784." On a hill a short distance to the 
right of the steamboat landing in Adolphustown the St. Alban's Anglican 
Memorial church contains a brass tablet bearing the following inscription: 
"One hundred years after the landing of the United Empire Loyalists on 
these shores, this Church of St. Alban the Martyr is built in proud memory 
of those patriots who became the founders of the Province of Ontario, in 
Honor, Loyalty and Fear of God, 1884." Photograph, colored. Size 5x6.

neer, his first employment being on the Erie Canal. He was subsequently 
engaged on the Welland Canal, and then as chief engineer of the Ottawa 
River works. Victoria Bridge, Montreal, is the outcome of plans of Mr. 
Keefer. He also constructed waterworks at Montreal, Hamilton, Ottawa 
and other cities, and for a time was Chief Engineer of Railways in Upper 
and Lower Canada. In 1847 he commenced the advocacy of the Grand 
Trunk Railway, and in 1869, of the Canadian Pacific. Mr. Keefer was the

1391 BY, LIEUT-COL. JOHN, R.E., 1780-1853 The founder of Ottawa, 
known in the early days as Bytown Came to Canada in 1800 as a lieuten- 
ant in the Royal Engineers, and shortly after his arrival was entrusted 
with the construction of the boat canal at the Cascades above Montreal. 
On successfully completing this undertaking he was removed to Quebec, 
where he superintended the building of the four martello towers outside 
the walls of that city. In 1811 went to England, but returned to Canada 
fifteen years later to construct the Rideau Canal. It was during the time 
that the canal was being built that the first huts were raised by Colonel 
By on the site of the present city of Ottawa. In 1832 the Colonel returned 
to England. Copy of silhouette in possession of Sir Frederick Williams-

1395 BIDWELL, MARSHALL SPRING Member Legislative As- 
sembly, U.C., 1824-36 He was born in Massachusetts, 1799; came to 
Canada with his father, Barnabas Bidwell, who became first master of the 
Bath Academy. The son studied law, practising in Kingston. Represented 
Lennox and Addington for thirteen consecutive sessions, during four 
of which he was Speaker. Bidwell, who was defeated in the general elec- 
tion of 1836, tried to secure the passing of an Act to abolish the law of 
primogeniture, and strongly championed Responsible Government. Al- 
though in sympathy with the Rebellion, he did not advise violence in any 
degree. Was, however, compelled to leave the country, going to New 
York, where he was admitted to the bar, and soon became recognized as a 
scholarly member of the profession. On his death in New York, 24th Dec., 
1872, Judge Daniel P. Ingraham said, "A more learned lawyer never prac- 
tised in our courts." Water color. Size 3x4. Head and shoulders. 

BEAVERTON, ONT. The rails of the square enclosure where the choir 
sat immediately behind the high pulpit with their backs to the congrega- 
tion, the precentor's box and the pulpit balustrade, with its carved newel 
top carved from a solid block of oak, are now faded, like the pulpit uphol- 
stery, to the color of the pine pews- Drawing in water color by Owen 
Staples. Size 4x6. See 1397, 1403. 

ONT. About 1855 the stoves shown were procured for the church. They 
are big cast iron box affairs, four and a half feet wide ana five feet long. 
They stand yet (1917) in the rear of the building, with doors opening 
through a low bricked arch, furnace like, into the vestibule, from where 
they were fired with four-foot logs. Drawing in water color by Owen 
Staples. Size 4x6. See 1396, 1403. 

1398 PERTH, U.C., 1853 Situated on the River Tay. The original 
picture was made from the brow of the hill near the residence of the late 
Dr. Thorn, which at the time was the only residence in that part of the 
town, all the land being an extensive farm. The section is now well built. 
The principal buildings shown are still standing, as are also some of the 
old shacks in the foreground. In 1853 the portion of the town in the 
neighborhood given was the hub; now it has changed westward. Sixty 
years ago. a great deal of timber floated down the River Tay, which later 
became the Tay Canal. The stone bridge crossing the river was torn 
down in order to build a swing bridge over the canal. The key gives main 
points in picture. From an oil painting by Mr. Field, of Perth. Size 7 x 14. 

1399 ST. CATHARINES, U.C., 1850 View from the south bank of 
the Twelve-Mile Creek The mills shown are the old Norris grist mills, 
now the Kinleith paper mills, and the green sward is the side of the hill 
leading down to the Twelve-Mile Creek, now part of the old, or first 
Welland Canal. To the left of the picture, the steep hill is part of the 
Merritt property, owned by Dr. W. H. Merritt. Between this incline 
and the bank where the Stephenson House stands, is part of the old 
Welland Canal. The greater part of the land on which the city of St. 
Catharines is built, was purchased in 1816 by the Hon. W. H. Merritt from 
the Hon. Robert Hamilton, of Queenston. The purchase consisted of about 
400 acres, the larger portion being a level plateau, on the south of which 
is the ridge commonly known as "the mountain." A patent had been 
granted to Hon. Robert Hamilton, who, on the first survey of the place in 
1809, named it in honor of his wife, Catharine Askin. "St. Catharines," 
however, was not universally used until after the purchase by Hon. W. H. 
Merritt in 1816, when, as a compliment to his wife, also called Catharine, 
the name was permanently established. Water color from a drawing in

BEAVERTON, ONT. Away back in 1832 a few Glengarry folk, who came 
to Canada from Islay, Scotland, settled on the eastern shores of Lake 
Simcoe. Soon the need of a place of worship was felt. St. Andrew's 
congregation was founded and the building of the old kirk commenced 
shortly afterwards. It was constructed of grey limestone, by heroic pio- 
neers of the neighboring country, and in 1840 neared completion. Fqr ten 
years the people worshipped in the unfinished church without floor or 
pew. The first minister, a graduate of Queen's University, was Rev. David 
Watson, A.M., D.D., who from 1853-98 carried on the work. The old and 
much-loved clergyman died in Beaverton, December, 1903, and to mark the 
fiftieth anniversary of his ordination, a memorial window was put in new 
St. Andrew's, Beaverton, and a brass tablet erected in the "Old Stone 
Church." Water color. Size 6x7. See 1396, 1397.

OTTAWA RIVER The photograph from which this picture is made was 
taken in 1901, from Queen's Wharf, Ottawa. It shows Nepean Point, a 
rocky promontory overlooking the river, and one of the piers of the Inter- 


Drovincial Bridge, then in course of erection, finished in 1903. The raft is 
nearly completed. It was the last to float down the Ottawa River, over the 
slides at Ottawa and thence down the St. Lawrence to Quebec. The rafts- 
men slept in the small house, and the large caboose was used for cooking. 
Near at hand is seen the tug in readiness to tow the timber to Quebec for 
shipment to England. Water color. Size 6x9. 

140 8 OTTAWA, C.W., 1855 Now the capital of Canada On the 

Ottawa River 87 miles from its confluence with the St. Lawrence, and at 
the mouth of the Rideau River. Founded by Col. By, of the Royal Engi- 
neers, commissioned in 1827 to construct the Rideau Canal. In 1854 
Bytown, named after its founder, was created a city and its name changed 
to Ottawa. The canal divided the city into the Upper and Lower Towns. 
In 1857 it was selected by Queen Victoria as the capital of the Dominion 
of Canada. The corner-stone of the Parliament Buildings was laid by King 
Edward VII., then Prince of Wales, in 1860, and the first Parliament of 
the Dominion was held there in 1867. The picture is taken from the east 
side of the Military Barracks, which stood on the site of the present Parlia- 
ment Buildings, and shows that part of the old town bounded on the north 
by the Ottawa River, on the east by Sussex street, on the south by Rideau 
street, and on the west by the Rideau Canal and Ottawa River. With 
key. Water color. Size 5x9. 


nine men saved The accident occurred at night, in the summer of 1853, 
at the Chaudiere Falls, where the crib or raft, missed the slide and was 
carried to the edge of the Fall, and held there on the point of a projecting 
rock. Early in the morning the perilous situation of the men was observed 
and nearly everyone in Ottawa was at the river side, at every point of 
vantage, watching the work of the rescuers. Mr. Charles B. Wright, father 
of Sheriff Wright, of Hull, managed the rescue. It was impossible to get 
a rocket to carry a light rope across, so Mr. Wright tied a light cord to a 
stone, and, after several attempts, landed the stone with the cord at- 
tached. A smaller rope was drawn over, and then a heavy rope or cable; 
this was made fast to a gin pole on the rock, and tightened by a crab or 
wrench. Then Wright and his fellow rescuers rigged up a sling similar to 
those used in rescuing people from vessels. The first man to come across 
was the heaviest of the nine on the raft, and to prove to his comrades that 
the arrangement was safe he went back to the crib and was the last man 
to be hauled across. Even food and utensils were saved. The rescuers are 
on a rock to the east of the Falls. This rock forms part of the mainland 
on the Hull side of the river, where the Eddy Mill now (1917) stands. The 
people in the foreground are standing on a small island near the Ottawa 
shore, and to the north of this are the slides through which the raft should 
have passed if properly guided. Water color. Size 7 x 10. 

1410 SAPPER'S BRIDGE, OTTAWA, 1867 View looking south. The 
bridge, which connects Sparks and Rideau streets, was built in 1832 by 
the British Government in connection with the Rideau Canal, and rebuilt 
along with the Dufferin Bridge, 1873-4. Sapper's Bridge was demolished 
in 1912, and the space between it and Dufferin bridge converted into a 
wide plaza with the Post Office as the base. Water color by Henry

1864 For the accommodation of the merchants and marine trade of the 
city, Aeneas Donald Mackay, an enterprising pioneer citizen of Hamilton, 
who emigrated from Golspie, Sutherlandshire, Scotland, in 1849, built on 
Burlington Bay front, at the foot of James street, the wharf and warehouses 
shown in the picture. Since 1860 all the large lake steamers have used 
this wharf, which is now (1917) the property of the Canada Steamship 
Lines. Water color. Size 4x6.

1412 SMITH'S TAVERN, HAMILTON, C.W., 1850 An early Masonic 
meeting place The original building in which Barton Lodge met from 
January, 1796, to November, 1797, was of log construction, situated in the 
Township of Barton, now the north-west corner of King and Wellington 
streets, Hamilton. As seen by the picture, this pioneer tavern was more 
extensive in 1850 than in 1797. The log house had practically disappeared; 
for it had been covered with a sheeting of clapboard about 1830 when the 
two-storey building to the left and the driving shed on the right of view, 
were erected. In 1840 the tavern and surrounding grounds were known 
as "Victoria Gardens." The front door of the original tavern was 80 feet 
west of Wellington street and the same distance north of King street, 
Hamilton. There are now three buildings on the old site, the east end 
branch of the Bank of Hamilton being on the corner. Drawing in color.
